Sinfonia De Carnaval – comprised of Anna Lang and Alois Eberl on the cello, trombone, accordion, electronics, percussion and vocals – is inspired by the expressive tonal discours of Jazz using different elements of Classical music, Rock and Funk. Sinfonia De Carnaval create a sonic universe out of the whole soundspectrum of their instruments, which is sometimes also mixed with electronic sounds.In their own compositions, such as “Sweeping Dragon” or “Man and rock”, the inner souls of hideous, beautiful, haunting, eerie, noisy, tender, loving, grumbling, dangerous, raging, good, bad, enchanting, wild or tragic figures are ignited.
In euphonious snap-shots as in “Totalen Nebelfinsternis” (EN: Total fog darkness), the “Windespfeifen in der Dämmerung” (EN: Windpipes at dawn) or the “African Suite”, the virtuoso duo inspires with a wide range of improvisations, racy grooves and wonderously ghastly dramatic.
