Quartetto Loco

The 4 musicians met in 2021 in the mountains of southern Switzerland, in the village of Loco, and formed a folk band: Quartetto Loco . However, the musical backgrounds of the musicians are so diverse that something new has emerged in the short time since the band was founded. In their search for new folk standards they ended up in the world of twelve-tone music. What sounds somewhat theoretical becomes a fireworks display with the unbridled folky energy and joy of playing of the Quartetto.

The pieces by Arnold Schönberg, Anton Webern, Ursula Mamlok and others suddenly sound like 21st century folk music. Original compositions that also play with the boundaries of tonality are mixed in the program. They create their own folky sound on flutes, clarinets, trumpet, organetto, violin, cello and yodelling. Arnold Schoenberg, the father of dodecaphony, claimed that in 50 years his music would be whistled in the streets as pop tunes. Quartetto Loco thinks the time has come to do that. It's time for dodecafolk!
