>> Matthias Schriefl's Multiorchester
Music on Tuesday, 19 May

The new Matthias Schriefl multi-orchestra is made up of fourteen musicians who play a wide range of instruments. The band plays new compositions by Schriefl which are close to Alpine and Alemannic folk music, whilst at the same time incorporating elements of modern classical music. The compositions come alive through a wide variety of sounds which somehow manage to meld a symphony orchestra together with a big band.
It's going to be tight on stage - the instruments themselves would suffice for a whole orchestra: timpani, two drum sets, a great range of brass, woodwind and string instruments, guitars, keyboards and a piano. As many of the musicians are multi-instrumentalists, the compositions can be interpreted differently: one might feature four tubas, whereas another is played by a woodwind quintet or three strings. On top of that, all of the band members are great soloists who love to play their hearts out so you can expect some stunning solo numbers as well. And finally let's not forget that in addition to a female singer there is also a male choir on stage!

Members of the band: Matthias Schriefl, Johannes Bär, Christoph Moschberger, Johannes Lauer, Felix Fromm, Michl Engl, Peter Heidl, Florian Trübsbach, Gregor Bürger, Simon Rummel, Sebastain Merk, Alex Morsey, Bodek Janke, Tamara Lukasheva
