BIOGRAPHY

“Tenor saxophonist, clarinettist and composer Leonhard Skorupa is a real prankster who sets no limits to his imagination. Probably in order to open up a tangible terrain for his urge to walk a stylistic tightrope, the native Viennese dances at so many musical weddings as never before seen by an Austrian. The mere enumeration of his musical construction sites is enough to give a vague idea of the Skorupa cosmos.

As a bandleader or co-leader, the woodwind player has led such original and well-known projects as the Sketchbook Orchestra, the Sketchbook Quartet, the Trio Znap, the ensemble Kuhle Wampe or Woody Black 4. Skorupa is also a member of AHL 6, the septet Aufmessers Schneide and other exciting ensembles in the sphere of jazz and improvised music. It reads like a sounding panopticon.” (Otmar Klammer)
