Schlaier Hirt - Symphonic Works

Schlaier Hirt - Symphonic Works
After more than 30 years of successful collaboration and concerts around the world we move on to the next stage in our musical career. Finally we realized the dream of arranging our original music with its power, complex compositions and uncompromising arrangements for symphonic orchestra. We mastered the challenge of transferring our duo identity to symphonic works.

  • This is certainly challenging music making and I am loving it!John Aielli

    Legendary Radio Host of KUT's Eklektikos · Austin/Texas

     
  • They are standing for one of the most self-willed jazz duos. After a few notes you are captured by their peculiar mixture of saxophone and guitar. Already in this early composition it is noticeable what distinguishes the Schlaier Hirt Duo: their unbelievable ability for the musical dialogue telling stories, or better: they develop music to the inner stories of the listener.SZ
  • …precise power-jazz that has something from a highly developed machine - a machine filled with soul, the spirit of jazz and the ability of invention.FA
