Sinfonia De Carnaval – comprised of Anna Lang and Alois Eberl on the cello, trombone, accordion, electronics, percussion and vocals. Inspired by the expressive tonal discours of Jazz and using different elements of Classical music, Rock and Funk, the duo creates a sonic universe out of the whole soundspectrum of their instruments, which is sometimes also mixed with electronic sounds. „This Jazz draws from the full“ (Presskit) In their own compositions, such as Sweeping Dragon or Dragons Guardian, the inner souls of hideous, beautiful, haunting, eerie, noisy, tender, loving, grumbling, dangerous, raging, good, bad, enchanting, wild or tragic figures are ignited. In euphonious snap-shots as in Totalen Nebelfinsternis (Total fog darkness), the Windespfeifen in der Dämmerung (Windpipes at dawn) or the African Suite, the virtuoso duo inspires with a wide range of improvisations, racy grooves and wonderously ghastly dramatic.
„Roisterous Revelry” - La Folia - „roisterous revelry and boisterous exuberance“ is promised by the WoodAirQuartet comprised of Anna Lang – Violoncello, Alois Eberl – Accordion/Tombone, Walter Singer – Basso Continuo and Robert Kainar – Percussion.
La Folia, a music and dance style from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, is elevated into the 21st century. The sounds of virtuosic works from the 17th and 18th centuries by D. Ortiz, A.M. Y Coll and M. Marais, as well as original compositions and improvisations, adapt the character traits and phrasing of La Folia. The concept of Folia („craziness or folly“) originates from Portugal and denotes not only a musical technique of variations but also dances and songs of the 16th century with Spanish and Portuguese sources. But beware! In the early beginnings, the Folia dances were banned due to their unbridled character. Johann Matheson: Der vollkommene Kapellmeister („the complete Music Director“), Hamburg 1739...“what is known as Folies d'Espagne, is nothing but foolishness, quite frankly.“
"Chamber Jazz at its finest" (Concerto Magazine). Four musicians – aight instruments as well as being endlessly keen to experiment and demonstrate versatility – these are the trademarks of the Chamber Jazz Quartet, PianoForteBrass. Through their original compositions comprised of sounds from jazz, improvised music and classical chamber music, the musicians transform chamber music -- an ensemble becomes a jazz band, and a salon orchestra mutates into a mini-brass band. Multi-facetted instrumentations and a virtuosic command of their instruments provide a rarely heard diversity of sounds and unexpected surprises!
Colours of Drama - an Intrumental Musictheatre for Cello, Cello Bow and Cellist.
With her cello and and all its infinite acoustic colours and playing techniques, the cellist and pianist, Anna Lang, conjures musical orchestration and imagery on the stage. The works – mainly her own compositions – are inspired by the colours, forms and facets of musical and performing arts.
Among the compositional influences in Anna Lang's music are the rhythms and tonal effects of jazz and extemporised music, but also the indestructible and valuable background of her classical musical training is incorporated. Especially in the solo programme Colours of Drama her creative passion to create something innovative and her enthusiasm for the fine art and performing arts is demonstrated.
Portions of scenes in which each unit has its own storyline, alternate with musical drama which is narrated in multiple acts.
Anna Lang finds her creative impulse in paintings, print graphics, in different snapshots of fascinating charcters as well as in the diverse perspectives, which may reflect a special atmosphere or moment.
