The international Zither Quintet Zither Five consisting of Jonathan Fiegl, Claudia Höpfl, Tajda Krajnc, Sophia Schmid and Mara Vieider formed while studying together at the University of Music and performing arts Munich with Prof. Georg Glasl. Their first concert took place in 2017 as a part of the festival »Zither auf Zeche« in Dortmund, Germany. After their first collaboration a desire for regular cooperation and making music was formed. The ensemble could be heard in the Munich and Nuremberg area in the year 2018, followed by a concert tour to South Tyrol, Italy in 2019. The repertoire mainly includes their own arragements for this particular ensemble. It ranges from renaissance music through compositions by Rosetti and Mozart up to contemporary music.
