Ernst Krenek: Reisebuch aus den österreichischen Alpen
Music from the Knaffl-Manuscript, 1813
Csakan-Music from the Biedermeier period etc.
What kind of life are people in the countryside leading? Before Archduke John of Austria, no other member of the Habsburg dynasty ever seriously considered this question. He, however, sent out his civil servants – among them Johann Felix Knaffl from Fohnsdorf – in 1813 to conduct folklore studies. In addition to lots of numbers, Knaffl recorded the folk music played in the region in his “Versuch einer Statistik vom kameralischen Bezirke Fohnsdorf im Judenburger Kreise”(attempt at a statistic on the district of Fohnsdorf in the Judenburg region) – an invaluable source for us today. There’s no better place than Stübing to breathe life in all its colours into Knaffl’s manuscript. Between folk music, readings and hiking tours with flutes made of walking canes, we bring up another form of folklore studies: Ernst Krenek’s “Reisebuch aus den österreichischen Alpen” (travel diary from the Austrian alps) is an ironic comment on the tourism of 1929. These songs just have to be played in Stübing as well.
