Schneeberger & Bakanic
Avanti Avanti

Diknu Schneeberger
is one of the world's most skilled guitarists in the tradition of Gypsy Swing. By a happy coincidence, his musical paths crossed with those of the Austrian accordion virtuoso Christian Bakanic. The result is the debut album "Avanti Avanti" in quartet constellation.

In a matter of seconds, the quartet enchants with their refreshing alpine swing. In the foreground, however, is always the interplay of catchy melodies and virtuosity of the Viennese musicians in their compositions. "Avanti Avanti" is a successful mixture of Gypsy Swing, Balkan Jazz, and new folk music. It becomes crystal clear after the first few chords: this quartet knows how to enchant the heart and the ear at the same time.

The pillars of the composition are strongly anchored, only the garment is adapted to the musical language of the radio.string.quartet. The newest music becomes a contemporary listening experience, in which the band lets its unique sound cosmos merge with the ideas and forms of the baroque master.
