Founded by members of the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras, the Philharmonix play everything they've ever wanted to. Their trademark: brilliant arrangements, incomparable virtuosity and, above all, an unbridled desire to make music together, which spills over to the audience in a matter of seconds. According to the latest projections, the stylistic mix consists of 30% classical, 20% jazz, 15% folk, pop and Latin, and 5% from other genres. So not everything is classical music. But everything has musical class. In their brilliant new versions, they extract never-before-heard, original sides from all the compositions - and skilfully bring together what otherwise does not belong together.
In Johann Strauss' overture to "Die Fledermaus," "The Third Man" creeps in after just a few bars. "The Elephant" from Camille Saint-Saëns' "Carnival of the Animals" meets its conspecific from Henry Mancini's "Baby Elephant Walk." And above Bach's C major prelude, Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" suddenly shines. Whether the Philharmonix work on a pop song or a Viennese song, Prokofiev or Tchaikovsky, Gershwin or Piazzolla: classical music cannot be more entertaining, entertaining and clever. Their claim: "The head must rejoice, the heart rejoice and the leg twitch."This content has been machine translated.
