Press Reviews

This music has substance. In performing it, the band reflects joy. Viva Europa!



Montreal Jazzfestival [...] on stage was Austria's Vienna Art Orchestra, Mathias Rüegg's zany, unconventional big band that uses almost every instrument imaginable (inculding a didgeridoo, what kind of band uses a didgeridoo?), to create a hilarious, sometimes swinging, sometimes way out sonic palette. The show was spectacular.
