The Ensemble airborne extended was founded 2013 as an enlargment of the Ensemble airborne – in order to play repertory for harp, harpsichord, flute and recorders/Paetzold, which had been written already in 1992 for the Italian Ensemble Alter Ego. Since the foundation of airborne extended, there have been a great variety of commissions for compositions e.g. by Hannes Kerschbaumer, Paolo Rimoldi, Bernhard Lang, Caroline Profanter, Dana Probst, Sylvie Lacroix, Joanna Wozny, Fernando Riederer, Wolfgang Mitterer, Bernhard Geigl, Elisabeth Harnik, Tomasz Skweres, Eduard Demetz, Alexander Kaiser, Matthias Kranebitter, Margareta Ferek-Petric, Elisabeth Schimana, Manuel Zwerger, Ming Wang, Mirela Ivcevic, Clemens Gadenstätter and Mathias Schmidhammer.
