Franui performs the great repertoire of the period from the Baroque to the late Romantic era, but with a twist. This ‘musicbanda’ from East Tyrol performs its own interpretations of songs by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Mahler, and Purcell. With a line-up that includes brass instruments, dulcimer, harp, and violin, the musicians create a sound that combines classical music with folk music and jazz. This enables Franui – whose Mahlerlieder was a success at the 2013 festival – to explore unfamiliar facets of this famous repertoire. They are collaborating with Florian Boesch, the bass-baritone who was a phenomenal Wozzeckat last year’s festival, and video artist Jonas Dahlberg, whose film set shows the relentless passing of time. The songs emphasise impermanence. Let Franui bring consolation.
