Janoska Ensemble


Janoska Ensemble


With their inimitable ‘Janoska style’ the four members of the Janoska Ensemble have developed a breathtakingly virtuosic and profoundly personal vision of music, which they interpret in a thoroughly modern way.

For their debut album they have chosen to present a picture of Vienna as a cultural melting pot, lacing it with irony and wit and taking it beyond the confines of the Austrian capital.

On ‘The Janoska Style’ virtuoso classics by Franz Waxman, Niccolò Paganini and Pablo de Sarasate are heard alongside a Viennese work by Fritz Kreisler and operetta themes by Johann Strauss combined with the strains of a Csárdás, music from the Balkans, the world of the tango, rumba and of jazz improvisations.

Their inexhaustible inventive arrangements allow the Janoska Ensemble to explore a wide range of works from popular classics to compositions that they have written themselves.

Violinist Julian Rachlin says: ‘As an ensemble “they are a whiff of fresh air”, combining their outstanding, individual talents with their family ties. They have become successful in performing in a variety of genres in their unique “Janoska style”, which is creating a new hybrid genre.’
