Introduction/Abstract

As a farewell for this edition, Alex Miksch presents his new homage to the city that has been our musical home since 1997: Krems.

Program text

For a long time the music of Alex Miksch was a hidden gem in the vaults of the Austrian blues and singer-songwriter scene – despite the fact he has already released six CDs; the latest is called “Nur a Opfe” (Just an Apple). The ambiguous symbolism of the apple inspired him to fantastic texts, pithy and passionate in the same breath. Miksch’s parents owned a tenement house in Krems, which he grew up in. Even though he is currently at home in Vienna-Meidling, he has always wanted to dedicate a whole programme to “his” Krems. But the complete programme took the time it takes: He collected odd ideas that sprang up, noted down experiences, and only when there was enough material there, Miksch shaped it together into concert form. There are a few places in Lower Austria to which he has already paid homage in clever, sensitive, and funny cover versions, for instance: “St. Pödn” (aka “Jackson” – Billy Wheeler) or “Zwettl” (“Minneapolis” – Tom Waits). But when Krems takes its musical turn, there is exclusively own material. And Alex Miksch will bring along a fine selection of colleagues. The “Pocketful Krems” is packed to the top and will be opened on stage – we can’t wait to see what’s inside!
