With "Start up!", Jeunesses Musicales of Austria presents up-and-coming Austrian musicians in a special concert format before selected events. In approx. 30-minute concerts, they take up a central idea of the main concert that follows, take on special formations or develop musical contexts associatively.
VIENNA CHAMBERBRASS presents a harmonious mixture of original works for brass trio, Viennese classical music and new compositions specially written for the trio. The three professional musicians Michael Dax (German trumpet), Max Pichler (Viennese horn) and Michael Böhm (bass trombone) create a new and unique sound experience for you! In cooperation with young composers, the musicians bring the traditional Viennese instruments out of the orchestra and create a new platform for them as solo instruments in chamber music.
International classical stars such as the violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja, the conductor Franz Welser-Möst or the Minetti Quartet have made their first career steps with Jeunesse Austria and have musically grown up with Jeunesse. Young musicians like them form the artistic reservoir of the music scene. Promoting these talents and accompanying them on their first steps into professional musical life is one of Jeunesse's most important tasks. For this reason the format "Start up!" was invented two years ago: Before established stars enter the stage, the audience can get to know the rough diamonds of the local young musicians in half-hour pre-concerts with free admission.
