"So much inspiration, humor, sensitivity and free flowing energy you rarely find on stage, especially with brass bands. (…) It’s tender, touching, full of power, playful and sad, everything you could imagine!!! It electrifies you and is there anything better than to forget everything around you and just be in the moment! World class!!!" ~World famous trumpet soloist Reinhold Friedrich, 2015

Federspiel /  Vienna, Austria

A seven-piece ensemble that redefines brass-band music. Utterly incredible skills meet the necessary youthful and charming freshness in playing, musical arrangements. “Creativity, spontaneity and joy is high on the members of the brass-band ensemble Federspiel’s list of priorities.

In 2005 seven young musicians, all students of the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, joined together to form the ensemble Federspiel. Folk music from Austria, neighboring countries and beyond is the starting point for their concerts. The musicians work on the melodies, improvise over them and let them sound new in their very specific tone – always with a splash of humor and self-irony.” (A. Wolowiec)

Federspiel’s particular style is defined by the origins and backgrounds of each individual musician including self-penned compositions with pop-elements, arrangements of traditional Mexican music, and even zither as a solo instrument. Therefore their type or genre of music doesn’t exist as they are unable to be placed within the parameters of existing genres like “folk,” “world,” or “traditional” music. The style of the ensemble is described best by its own name: Federspiel (feather game).

Bardentreffen Festival 2015

"Whether a band captivates and inspires, you can find out by the audience‘s movements at the side. And nobody moved! Every single person listened with fascination. There was this feeling as if the surrounding houses of Sebalder Platz were transforming into mountains! Wonderful!" (Rainer Pirzkall, Artistic Director, Bardentreffen Festival, Nuremberg, 2015)
