more about LINKIDS
Wolfgang Amadeus Schmutzinberry, the imaginary composer, thinks he is a musical genius. He looks and dresses like Mozart but lacks basic skills... Each Schmutzinberry program is an entertaining event that involves live acting, live music, and of course plenty of audience participation. Every time his feathered quill touches paper, the musical ensemble sounds out his ideas… no matter how many amusing mistakes he makes. When Wolfgang encounters a problem young audience members cannot help him with, he travels back and forth in time using his secret note combinations which will take him anywhere: Wolfgang has been back in time for composition lessons with Beethoven, Brahms, even rock legend Edgar Winter. in this new show - Schmutzinberry will learn about contemporary music through musical experts from Schoenberg, Ravel, Bartok, Messiaen, Harrison, Reich and Babbit and will learn together with the audience about the journey of chamber music in the twenty first century.
