December 2023

The new concert program tells of the iridescent melting pot on the dazzling Danube, of born Viennese and Zuagrastn and of “real” music, whatever it may sound like.

The songbooks of Franz Schubert, Hans Moser, Arnold Schönberg and Joe Zawinul are played by musicians that only exist in Vienna: Having grown up with Jimi Hendrix, Charlie Parker, Schrammelmusik, Musikantenstadl, Weißen G'spitzten and Schmalzbrot, they are representatives of a style like you only hear in this city...

Wolfram Berger, born in Graz and trained in Vienna, indulges his passion for playing in the cosmos of different forms of language and onomatopoeia. By H.C. Artmann, via Ernst Jandl to Konrad Bayer and Friedrich Achleitner. With his cheerful, unbridled love affair with the microphone and his passion for interpreting, he adds to the ensemble's adventurous music

“Zur Eiserne Zeit” adds its two cents. There won't be a dry eye or a dry throat.

The press writes about Wolfram Berger:
.. no, it doesn't fit into a drawer, it's too versatile for that. In a slightly bulky chest of drawers, perhaps, without a lid, one with a confusing number of compartments... (Tagesanzeiger Zurich)
Wolfram Berger's AuIriJe are sparkling brilliant achievements: funny, exciting, extremely touching, absurd and full of surprises (citty, Vienna)
