Once upon a time Franz Liszt stripped Schubert's songs of their voices; now Franui have gone one step further, and a big step at that: they have transferred the essential spirit of Schubert to the 21st century. "Music to make your knees weaken," praised the Berliner Zeitung. "Franui take us into the crowded taverns, where despite the alcohol, the tobacco, the noise and the pain he played and played and played. To places where Franz Schubert had perhaps already spotted the squint-eyed grins of later kindred spirits, such as Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Weill and Lennon. To places where people love the blues." (Thomas Wördehoff) Well – it wasn't in a crowded tavern that the Musicbanda Franui met but in a small Austrian village, Innervillgraten in East Tyrol, where most of the musicians grew up. And Franui is the name of a mountain pasture there, some 2,000 meters above sea level: a fertile breeding ground for creative flights of fancy, as is evidenced by these original arrangements for an eccentric dance band of the Austrian variety. Woodwind, brass, harp, zither, dulcimer, violin and double bass – it's simply amazing how they go about revealing the very core of the folk music influences in Schubert's sincere music while at the same time taking us full circle, back to those suburban taverns of Vienna. In short: Schubert as you have never heard him before.
