friends of brass music!
passed 20 years now, being on the move as"Innsbrucker Böhmische" and we've
always tried to cultivate the most possible perfection of brass music
passionately and with all our enthusiasm. It's been
great success for us, that we managed to win the hearts so many music
enthusiasts and they are getting more and more.
concerts on big or small events within Austria but also abroad, invitations to
the biggest "Böhmische Musikfestivals" all over Europe, one golden
CD-Production and many concerts on radio and TV are the proof that it was worth
to go our own way within the bohemian brass music at the time and create a
totally new and unconventional 7 man ensemble with a very special and
of the "Innsbrucker Böhmische" started at the "Tirlerwirt" on the Seiseralm in
South Tyrol during a very rustic evening in an alpine hut. Farmers, the
innkeepers and a few tourists and some musicians were present - not many but it
was a lot - it was just right: the "Innsbrucker Böhmische" was founded.
musicians played in the well known "Oberkrainer" formation: Norbert
Rabanser - drums, composer and head of the team, the trumpets Heinz
Weichselberger and Rupert Darnhofer, accordion Fredl Gradwohl. 3 CDs came
out of that formation called "die Innsbrucker", which were welcomed with big
attention and enthusiasm, and are still highly rated amongst experts and
the wish of enlarging the ensemble to the typical "Innsbrucker Böhmische" developed and now there are 6 brass musicians and one drummer.
beside Norbert, Heinz and Rupert the trumpet player Markus Ettlinger, the
trombone players Harald Kobler and Mathias Rauch, the tuba player Gerhard
Anker are part of the ensemble.
of the group are the own compositions and arrangements from Norbert Rabanser
and Mathias Rauch, which require high virtuosity on the instrument.
guaranteed, because of our highly valued and excellent musicians , who all have
graduated from a university study and have played in famous orchestras and
formations like the Vienna or Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestra of
NDR, the "Gewandhausorchester Leipzig" or the Tyrolean Symphony Orchestra
Innsbruck. Furthermore we are tutors at different music schools, at the
Tyrolean academy of music and at the "Mozarteum" in Salzburg.
We are very
thankful for the appreciation from our fans, the remarkable friendship, that
developed in the last years and we are looking forward to reviving the bohemian
brass music with your support again and again.
Yours "INNSBRUCKER BÖHMISCHE"
