Moritz Weiß Klezmer Trio
Founded in Styria in 2015, the Moritz Weiß Klezmer Trio presented their debut album “Spheres” in May 2017. What looked like a classical Klezmer formation in the beginning soon turned into an ensemble experimenting with jazz and classical music in combination with Klezmer. Compositions with complex structures and subtle changes in harmony are one of the trio’s stylistic devices. Lively, “lurid” pieces, however, form an antithesis, express great joie de vivre and inspire the audience of the Moritz Weiß Klezmer Trio with playful wit and spontaneity.
Since its foundation the ensemble has been invited to various festivals such as the styriarte, Jeunesse, Styrian Chamber Music Festival, KlangHerbst Schlaining, International Klezmer Festival Fürth, KlezMore Vienna, Jazzliebe/ljubezen… including invitations to concert venues such as the Vienna Concert Hall, Porgy & Bess Vienna, JazzIt! Salzburg. The trio had numerous radio appearances on Radio Ö1, Radio Vorarlberg, Radio Steiermark, Radio Helsinki.
