By a happy coincidence, his musical paths crossed with those of Austrian accordion virtuoso Christian Bakanic. The latter initially also proﬁled himself in international jazz projects and classical chamber music ensembles and is now ﬁnding his way back to the Styrian harmonica and thus to his folk music roots for the ﬁrst time in 20 years.
The basis for the two virtuosos’ creative heights is formed by the equally well-rehearsed and sensitive rhythm section with Julian Wohlmuth on rhythm guitar and Martin Heinzle on double bass. Eagerly awaited by audiences and music industry experts alike, the album “Avanti, Avanti” was released in September 2023 as a musical autumn firework.
With their refreshing “Alpine Swing”, the quartet enchants in a matter of seconds. The Viennese musicians’ compositions focus on the interplay of catchy melodies and virtuosity. A successful mixture of gypsy swing, Balkan jazz and new folk music will have the audience ﬂowing through the evening both turbulently and gently, and it becomes clear after the ﬁrst few bars: this quartet knows how to enchant both the heart and the ear like no other.
