Fizzy Austrian Frizzante on tour in SA

Trio Frizzante
Trio Frizzante

Frizzante means sparkling, vivacious or fresh in Italian. This Austrian Trio brings an effervescent approach to their music and they’re here on tour.

Founded in Vienna in 2009, the ensemble, comprising Doris Lindner (piano), Marlies Gaugl (flute) and Johannes Kubitschek (cello), supports the creation and production of new music by premiering these works in many of the performances they give. In so doing they carry the “New Austrian Sound of Music” around the world, supported by the Austrian cultural foreign ministry.

Besides playing in the trio, Marlies is the principal flutist of the Graz Opera, Johannes is a permanent member of the Radio Symphonie Orchestra Vienna and Doris is teaching at the Lower Austria Music Academy.

During the South African tour, cellist Katarzyna Bieniasz-Morrison will stand in for Kubitschek. Bieniasz-Morrison is a member of The Graz Philharmonic Orchestra. She completed her Master studies in Performance Cello with professor Florian Kitt in 2011, as well as Chamber Music Masters with professor Chia Chou (Parnassus Trio) in 2014, both with highest distinction.

Frizzante, across the boundaries of a diverse repertoire, classical to jazz, enthusiastically aspire to inspire their audience and create admiration for the instruments portrayed in the make-up of the ensemble.
