Zinq & Johannes Silberschneider aka Johnny Silver (Austria)

The string quintet around violinist and composer Magdalena Zenz and actor Johannes Silberschneider (played e.g. in "Anne Frank" with Ben Kingsley) take on the often superficially dismissed romantic texts, rhythms and melodies of the trivial literature of the Schlager world. Some backs of hit singles can be heard in an unusual line-up, such as unlifted, long forgotten poetic and compositional treasures. Unforgettable melodies are newly framed - including passe-partout! - and blossom in full radiance.

The Sargfabrik is tucked away in the fourteenth district, well away from the usual tourist track. Built on the site of a former coffin works, it was conceived as a ‘communal self-governing housing project with an advanced cultural programme’


This is where world music in all its variety is at home. A huge range of musical groups play at the Sargfabrik every week.
What they all have in common is their individuality and the high standard of the performances.
