Heinz Karl Gruber – known as Nali – achieved his international breakthrough with a single composition. In 1978, British conductor, Simon Rattle, conducted the première of his “pandemonium”, Frankenstein!!, to huge acclaim, and opened up the doors of the international music world to the Austrian composer. For a long time, nobody was prepared to concede that this clown, who appeared with children’s instruments and tonal compositions, was serious. Yet today not only is he one of the most successful living composers, but also much in demand as a chansonnier and conductor. “Nali Gruber – Not Just Frankenstein” conveys an intense, personal insight into the fascinating world of this musical master.
