The Vienna Berlin Music Club - that's what the Philharmonix call themselves.

Founded by members of the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras, the Philharmonix play everything they've ever wanted to. Their trademark: brilliant arrangements, incomparable virtuosity and, above all, an unbridled desire to make music together, which is transmitted to the listener in a matter of seconds. According to the latest projections, the stylistic mix is 30 % classical, 20 % jazz, 15 % folk, pop and Latin, and 5 % from other genres. So not everything is classical music. But everything has musical class. In their brilliant new versions, they bring out new, original sides to all the compositions - and skilfully bring together what otherwise would not belong together. In Johann Strauss' overture to "Die Fledermaus", "The Third Man" creeps in after just a few bars. "The Elephant" from Camille Saint-Saëns' "Carnival of the Animals" meets his fellow elephant from Henry Mancini's "Baby Elephant Walk". And over Bach's C major prelude, Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" suddenly shines. Whether the Philharmonix work on a pop song or a Viennese song, Prokofieff or Tchaikovsky, Gershwin or Piazzolla: classical music cannot be more entertaining, entertaining and clever.
