Eddie Luis - violin 1
Elisabeth Weber- violin 2
Elisabeth Reitbauer - viola
Lukas Raumberger - upright bass
2 violins, one viola and one upright bass form the original band “HEANZEN QUARTETT” with its unique Austrian folk music sound: NO electricity! Prof. Rudi Pietsch is a teacher and protagonist of this idea and a true trend-setter for inspiration. Other models and helpers on the way to authentic performance of an almost forgotten or even unknown music treasure are Prof. Hermann Härtel, prof. Sepp Spanner, the Styrian Volksliedwerk and members of Wiener Philharmoniker.
The ELISEN musicians play printed and MS editions of Austrian folk music collections including songs, marches, polkas, mazurkas and waltzes from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, and love so-called HEANZEN MUSIC in traditional Burgenland style.
