We can marvel here – after a break of 17 years – at the sonorous reunion of a band which made waves worldwide in the 1990s. The octet used wind, string and plucked instruments to marry Alpine folk music with Stravinsky, Weill or Rota – this is more or less how it was described back then. In any case, the musicians thought well outside of the box (of dumplings). Since then, they have enjoyed international careers in both early and contemporary music. Christof Dienz, their musical mastermind, called them into the studio several months ago. Everyone came. The author Felix Mitterer, known for his stage plays and film scripts, describes the result thus:

“This music is like a dream I once had in Ireland. (The day was already dawning, the shutters were closed). A wave, slowly pulsating, suffused my body, soft and cool, more soothing than anything ever before, somehow blue, phosphorescent – and I took off, into infinity.”
