Part of the G’mischter Satz (a blended vintage) cycle

This musical reading honours two artists who were not only genuine Viennese originals, but also citizens of the world. As H. C. Artmann would have said, this promises to be “wos bsundas” (something special). His unique writing is read here by Karl Markovics. These texts are placed alongside Gulda’s early big band compositions from the 1950s and 60s, and his well-known Concerto for Cello and Wind Band, performed here by soloist Matthias Bartolomey with the Vereinigten Bühnen Wien Orchestra.

This cello concerto is one of Gulda’s most-performed pieces. Its premiere took place in 1981, with the composer conducting the Vienna Wind Ensemble. In this piece Gulda fused folk music from the Salzkammergut region with elements of jazz and rock. The concerto also reflects his love of the Attersee.

“Uanschliaffa” (forficula auricularia, the common earworm) is a neologism minted by H. C. Artmann. It comes from the “dictionary” in his volume of poetry “med ana schwoazzn dintn”. Artmann explains: “The following dictionary is dedicated to those Viennese who are somewhat isolated by a counter-productive dexterity in their mother tongue, and would otherwise have to struggle on without the required understanding”.
