They appear out of nowhere, a young woman with a drum and the five-piece brass band Blechreiz Brassquintett. They play at railway stations, in outdoor pool compounds, on streets and in squares. They are a motley crew attracting people to new and old music, making them enjoy the summer, the countryside. They bring us well-known and not-so-well-known folk music from Carinthia which gives a voice to cultural diversity in Carinthia due to its German and Slovene background – brushed the wrong way with gusto in new instrumental arrangements by composer Oskar Aichinger. All new pieces were commissioned by the Carinthian Summer Festival. The Carinthian Summer Festival is out and about again in 2017, starting in the festival town of Villach, moving along the railway line from Villach to St. Veit and Klagenfurt, and stopping over in the valleys of the rivers Gail, Lavant and Drava as well as at Friesach.
The musical ambassadors will call at various stations; more information about the specific locations will be published on this site in May.
