Description of Style

Stylistically the compositional work of Eugen Brixel does not fit into any scheme. On the one hand avantgarde music, in which Brixel uses the latest techniques of postserial random, postmodern notation, such as in "Aulodie" [...]. On the other hand, when he composes for wind orchestra, a strong tradition is intentionally broken through, a tradition of old austrian entertainment music, which is deliberately incoperated (as in the suite "Viennensia") and/or parodied (as in the paraphrase about motives of Johann Strauss "Apropos Strauss"). In this area of cheerful and witty wind music lies Brixel's convincing chamber works, the "Commedia dell'arte" for flute, clarinet and horn, "Audiamus igitur" for brass quintet or "Vaudeville" (Homage to Offenbach) for saxophone quartet.
