Description

Having received standing ovations on tour with Gotye, Tommy Emmanuel, Lior, Savage Garden and at the Victorian Arts Centre, the Karneval Strings have also typically been described by elated brides as “unique and unforgettable”. Over the past 15 years the Karneval Strings have performed throughout Australia and Asia. They have been regular performers on Dancing with the Stars, It Takes 2, Star Struck, X Factor,  ‘Hey Hey It’s Saturday’, ‘In Melbourne Tonight’ and ‘Good Morning Australia.’

Karneval’s television appearances have included performances with Enya, Jon Stevens, Tommy Emmanuel, Wendy Mathews, Daryl Braithwaite, David Gates, Rick Price, Caroline O’ Connor, Soraya, Renee Geyer, David Hobson, David Hirschfelder, and Antennae.

The Karneval musicians have studied abroad, at Melbourne University Conservatorium, the Victorian College of the Arts, the Australian National Academy of Music, and privately with teachers of international standing. Over many years Karneval musicians have enjoyed receiving awards and scholarships for their high standard of playing. Between them they have performed throughout Australia, Europe, Japan, and South Africa.

The Karneval players are in demand as session musicians recording at many of Melbourne’s top studios. Film recording highlights include Macbeth, Elizabeth, Sliding Doors, The man who sued God, The Interview, What becomes of the broken hearted, and My brother Jack.  Karneval musicians have also recorded for many bands and TV commercials.

Over the past 10 years the Karneval Strings has had the great pleasure of performing to many people including celebrities Kylie Minogue, Kanye West, Kimberly Davies, Darryl Somers, and Robert Allenby.  Karneval have also performed at the Adelaide Honda Music Festival, the Falls Creek Chamber Music Festival, the Northern Territory Brolga Awards, the Presidents Cup Dinner, The Australian Open, the Commonwealth International Tennis Tournament, and many more.

Karneval has recently toured Australia with Aria award winning Gotye performing at many festivals including Splendour in the Grass (Byron Bay) Falls Festival (Lorne & Tasmania) Homebake (Sydney) Meredith Music Festival (Victoria) Southbound (WA) and many more. In July 2008 Karneval is performing with Russell Morris and Lior for the induction of Russell Morris to the Aria hall of fame. 

Most importantly, Karneval musicians love what they do. Audiences love it too.

Combinations

Quartet
This dynamic traditional string quartet comprises of four experienced performers playing two violins, a viola and a cello. The quartet has over 40 hours of repertoire, which ranges from baroque and classical to the lively 50’s and 60’s swing jazz style. With it’s very full sound, the group is ideal as atmospheric background music for large audiences. The ensemble enjoys audience interaction and is happy to play requests if music is available. While the quartet encourages bridal couples to choose music which is special to them for their wedding service, they are also happy to assist with any musical choices.
As well as providing background atmosphere the quartet regularly performs on the concert stage. This can further enhance an elegant function by providing a stylish interlude. Unless otherwise requested, the musicians appear in elegant black.

Trio
The trio, two violins and a cello, performs a similar repertoire of background classical music to that of the quartet. While the volume of repertoire is not as great as that of the quartet, the trio is still able to perform many of the well known classics. The trio can be a very good alternative to the quartet without compromising elegance and style.

Duo
The intimate violin/cello duo performs atmospheric background classical music. This ensemble plays many of the favourites from the baroque and classical eras and is able to offer a change in pace with a small repertoire of jazz.

Solo
Both the solo violin and cello add understated elegance to any function. The violinist is able to perform a repertoire of classics and jazz while wandering through the audience serenading listeners. The cellist offers a sonorous and rich musical experience performing a repertoire of largely classical music.

Gypsy
The gypsy trio captures attention with a combination of European folk tunes, latin American sounds and elements of jazz/swing . With its unique and distinctive style, gypsy carneval released its first album in 2000. Gypsy carneval is able to perform as a violin duo and a vioin/cello duo. The essence of Hungarian folk music is obvious as the two Hungarian violinists wander through the audience entertaining their listeners. The violin/cello duo, while not mobile, creates a festive but relaxed mood and can relocate easily and quickly.
