There are hardly any musicians who have rendered such outstanding services to Austrian jazz like the flutist and saxophonist Wolfgang Puschnig. The Honorary Doctor of the Alps-Adriatic University of Klagenfurt was a founding member of the Vienna Art Orchestra, accompanied readings by the poet Ernst Jandl, brought punk jazz to Vienna with the Pat Brothers, collaborated with the Korean drum group Samul Nori and developed with violinist Mark Feldman transatlantic chamber jazz. Wolfgang Puschnig is a brilliant soloist and brilliant virtuoso, an internationally recognized stylistic border crosser without fear of contact. His musical projects are an expression of his artistic openness, curiosity and desire to experiment at the highest level. His project Alpine Aspects, founded in 1991 with companions such as bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma and trumpeter Herbert Joos as well as the brass band Amstettner Musikanten, was an initial spark in Austria for jazz's recourse to alpine folklore. As in New Orleans, even in the Austrian Alps the most archaic music is usually the liveliest!
As a special project for Bad Ischl 2024, the legendary Alpine Aspects concept by Wolfgang Puschnig is to be realized with the Bürgerkapelle Bad Ischl.
With new rehearsals by the Bürgerkapelle under the direction of Christian Binder and Robert Pussecker, the second mastermind of Alpine Aspects.
"Cosmopolitanism, without forgetting its origins. Few manage this aesthetic balancing act as credibly and as disarmingly sensual as Wolfgang Puschnig. A message with model character. Not only for Europe. Not only for Carinthia." - Andreas Felber
