Traditional Folk Music

The Tanzgeiger do away with the boundaries between the normally strictly separated worlds of art music and popular music when they interpret popular music in a highly artistic manner just as they perform art music in an entertaining way. Music ethnologist Rudi Pietsch, founder and Prímás of the Tanzgeiger for decades, has saved many dance music pieces from moldering in dusty archives and arranged them for his band. Especially landler, older than those of Franz Schubert, have come back to life through him. Parties and festivals, dance events, congresses, and concerts – there are as many occasions for the Tanzgeiger to play as there are good reasons to enjoy life. They present themselves powerful, intimate, virtuoso and unpredictably captivating.
