«Federspiel»: It’s the sheer pleasure in new and unique things. It’s Alpine brass music with contemporary refinement, innovative sonic worlds, created from the sound of six brass instruments plus clarinet. As one of the most innovative and interesting ensembles on the European brass music scene, the ensemble has been playing its way into its public’s hearts for more than ten years, tours worldwide to great acclaim and guarantees a good atmosphere at any festival. In May 2016 «Federspiel», together with other hip formations such as «ALMA» and «Landstreich», opened the Wiener Festwochen festival. Now the band’s own compositions, with their wild, dreamy blend of Austrian folk music and world-music elements, are meeting a symphony orchestra for the first time – in professional arrangements, naturally.
