When tuba player Siegfried Jung gave the composers the instruction to write a piece for this album, he gave them the following task: Write in the style of the folk music of your home country, so that it will be recognized by locals as a part of their culture. The result fascinates not only by the richness of the sounds, but also by the unusual combination of tuba and harp in some of the works. Siegfried Jung, born in Timisoara, studied orchestral playing with tuba as principle instrument at the Musikhochschule Franz Liszt in Weimar with Walter Hilgers. Since 1999, he has been a tuba player in the Orchester des Nationaltheaters Mannheim. He has gained a wide reputation in Germany and abroad through his long teaching experience at the music conservatoires in Frankfurt am Main and alongside solo appearances and receives regular invitations to teach at master classes. He has performed as guest with prestigious orchestras including the BR Sinfonieorchester, the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, the German radio orchestras SWR Stuttgart, HR Frankfurt and SR Saarbrucken, the Munchener Philharmoniker, at the Staatsoper in Munich and with the Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest Amsterdam.
