Tulln on the Danube (OTS) – The summer program of musik aktuell – new music in Lower Austria is as varied as the music of our time. In keeping with the seasonal theme “Zkrrsh-Bumm-Doing!”, curated by percussionist Ingrid Oberkanins for musik aktuell 2023, the festival stages in Lower Austria this summer are all about new music from the world, jazz, folk and classical genres – the main thing is rhythm !
Die Amadeus Music Awards winner Shake Stew around Lukas Kranzelbinder are grooving into the summer with cool jazz vibes on June 30th at the 42nd International Music Festival Waidhofen/Thaya. Load on July 8th Grandmother Hatz at the “Schrammel.Klang.Festival” to dance, while the multi-instrumentalist Albin Paulus celebrates the wonderful world of his jaw harp at the “Offene Grenz” festival in Retz.

On August 12, the actor Helmut Bohatsch and the music trio will move LSZ (Hannes Loeschel, Paul Skrepek, Martin Zrost) tackled the comical and bizarre texts of the poet HC Artmann with virtuosity and humor at the “Hin & Weg” festival in Hörmanns near Litschau. Alpha Triangles start a journey into the infinity of sounds and rhythms at the “Jazz im Hof” festival in St. Pölten on August 26th. The four musicians move between earthy, edgy tones, energetic, bubbling grooves and floating, calm sound paintings that tell of wanderlust and the view of the starry night sky…
