Info

The basis for the multi-faceted original composition A BAVARIAN CROSSOVER is the "Bavarian Polka", popular in Germany and Austria. It is a traditional couple's dance, and the name is simply associated with its origin in Bavaria. In Austria, on the other hand, the colloquial name "Boarischer" is more likely to refer to a peasant polka or a peasant dance.

The dance is the connecting element in the piece which is composed of two large parts: in the first part, the composer perfectly captures the cosy character of the "Bavarian polka" described above. In the second part, he then skilfully transforms the previously used thematic material into a casual reggae.

"Crossover" describes the fusion of different musical styles and genres. It is not only the title and programme of the work itself, but also the philosophy of the formation "Viera Blech", which has now been in existence for over fifteen years. A BAVARIAN CROSSOVER was initially written for their CD "Serious?", which was released in 2020, and has now been arranged by band leader and composer Martin Scharnagl for both wind orchestra and woodwind ensemble. Playing and listening pleasure are guaranteed with this creative piece! Incidentally, the "Bavarian Polka" is not only audible but also partly visible in this piece. Allow it to surprise you ...
