The Ensemble Ouranos was founded in 2014 by five young soloists eager to explore the great wind quintet repertoire. Each of its members, trained at the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris, has been individually rewarded in major international competitions. Since their beginnings, they have collaborated with some of the best players of their generation, producing colorful and resolutely personal interpretations of the chamber music repertoire.
The ensemble  won in 2017 the First Prize, the Audience Prize, the Internet Prize, and the Bullukian Prize at the 13th Lyon International Competition for Chamber Music. The following year they recorded their first album, produced by NoMad Music and featuring works by Dvorak, Ligeti and Nielsen. 
In 2019, Ouranos gained international recognition by winning the first Prize and the special Prize for the commissioned work at the Carl Nielsen Chamber Music Competition in Copenagen.
The ensemble has shared the stage with many talented musicians such as Renaud Capuçon, Nicholas Angelich, Robert Levin, Bertrand Chamayou and the Hermès Quartet, in prestigious venues all over the world (Paris, Aix-en-Provence, Hong-Kong, Macau, Taiwan…).
Last summer, the Ensemble Ouranos recorded their second album dedicated to works for wind quintet and piano, to be released at the end of 2021.
