In “The Vienna Chamber Diaries” I fuse my two musical souls into one project: Jazz and contemporary classical music. The album is a blend of subtle chamber music, high-energy improvisation, groove and intricate polyphonic writing.
The music has been written (mostly) over the course of a year, marking very personal experiences and reflections – hence the title. Like diary entries each composition paints a unique story for the listener to discover.
The album is released on Wolfgang Muthspiel´s Label "Material Records".
It is a very special project, recorded in december 2012 by an ensebmle of incredible musicians from both the jazz and the classical world:
Wolfgang Muthspiel – electric, accoustic & baritone guitar
Klaus Gesing – soprano saxophone, bass clarinet
Gwilym Simcock – piano
Johannes Dickbauer – violin
Florian Eggner – cello
Matthias Bartolomey – cello
Thomas Frey – flute, piccolo flute, alto flute
Paul Kaiser – oboe
Christian Bakanic – accordion

In a campaign through the Crowdfunding platform STARTNEXT around 40 interested, believing, supportive, art-loving people gave a little contribution (smaller or larger).
It added up to a sum of 2500€ for the recording projects budget !!!
Thank you all so much. I hope the music will give you a lot of joy!
