The orchestra KlangVerwaltung was founded in 1997 by violinists Andreas Reiner and Josef Kröner. While the public focus was initially aimed at the unusual name - KlangVerwaltung litterally means "sound administration" - acting as responsible advocates of the great masterpieces and their creators - it quickly became clear that a new elite orchestra had taken the stage - historically informed, from early Baroque to today's repertoire.

The orchestra's superlative technical and chambermusiclike interaction, extraordinary soloist's abilities, amazingly colourful sound - supported by instruments from Stradivari and Guarneri - and their unusually dedicated and lively habitus have earned them brilliant reviews as well as a great degree of sympathy, not common in the professional orchestral world.

KlangVerwaltung appeared at the Berlin Philharmonic, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Vienna's Musikverein, to name a few and toured throughout Europe, the US, Asia and Southamerica.

In July 2016 they performed Beethoven's 5. symphony with Kent Nagano before an audience of 15.000 at the Audi-Festival in Ingolstadt.

The anniversary season 2016/17 brought the orchestra to China, Korea, Canada and the US with concerts in Toronto, Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia and New York's Carnegie Hall.

Enoch zu Guttenberg was the principal conductor of Orchestra KlangVerwaltung until his death in June 2018.
With Kent Nagano, Roberto Abbado, Andrew Parrot, Reinhard Goebel, Paul McCreesh, Paul Goodwin, Thomas Zehetmair, Heinrich Schiff, Salvador Mas Conde, Dirk Joeres, Giuliano Carmignola and without conductor with their leader Andreas Reiner they appeared on stage.
