VIENNA CHAMBER DIARIES Vol. 2 (Album preview)

“The Vienna Chamber Diaries”  is a fusion of my two musical souls – Jazz and contemporary classical music – into one project. The music is a blend of subtle chamber music, high-energy improvisation, groove and intricate polyphonic writing.


The project was launched in 2012 (mentored and produced by Wolfgang Muthspiel). In April 2018 the new album will be released on Lotus Records and features outstanding musicians from both the classical and jazz world:


core group:

Johannes Dickbauer – violin

Florian Eggner – cello

Christian Bakanic – accordion

Omer Klein – piano 


special guests on the album:

Klaus Gesing – soprano saxophone, bass clarinet

Mahan Mirarab – guitar

Martin Berauer – bass

Bernhard Schimpelsberger – percussion, konnakol


and Plattform K+K Vienna

Kirill Kobantschenko, Bernie Mallinger, Aurore Cany, Florian Eggner



 The VCD debut album was released in 2012 on Wolfgang Muthspiel´s Label "Material Records".




It features Johannes Dickbauer (vl), Florian Eggner (vc), Christian Bakanic (acc) & Gwilym Simcock (p) as well as special guests Wolfgang Muthspiel (g), Klaus Gesing (ss, bcl), Matthias Bartolomey (vc), Thomas Frey (fl, picc.fl, a.fl) & Paul Kaiser (ob).
