It’s all in the mix. What makes this series special is its sheer variety: we hear CrossNova give Schumann’s “Dichterliebe” a new, freshly blended classical treatment, while in the Salzburg Marionette Theatre’s acclaimed piece “Pùnkitititi!”, Mozart sends a giant octopus into a hotel room. And this Christmas Joe Hofbauer and his gang let rip with seasonal Big Band hits such as “Winter Wonderland” and “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”. So best wrap up warm! Over at Café Drechsler, there’s a new musical programme on the menu. But they still serve up an irresistible mix of jazz, drum & bass, hip-hop, and soul. Meanwhile, the young lions of the New Piano Trio get to meet violin master, Benjamin Schmid. Timna Brauer paints a vivid and fascinating picture as she explains how to properly celebrate the Sabbath, and, in the final concert, Trio BreinSchmid&Donchev demonstrate their mastery of improvisation.
