Instrument making

Saalfelden

In 1946 during the period of post-war misery, the Walter Roßmeisl Family came to Saalfelden from Schönbach / Egerland (now Czech Republic) and opened an industrial manufacturing of stringed instruments there in the district of Haid. Johannes Hofer joined the Roßmeisl Company in 1957 as a skilled luthier and in 1969 was able to set up his own shop in Uttenhofen. In 1973, with enormous diligence, he was able to open a new plant Lenzing, which he handed on to his son in 1997.

Music Clubs & Groups

Numerous music clubs & groups in Saalfelden and Leogang.

Now, as then, there are numerous groups and clubs that preserve and foster the music culture in Saalfelden and Leogang:

Folk Music & “New” Music

After World War II there were essentially three important musical genres:

Folk Music: Folk music has continued to hold a high place in the region. Especially after World War II, in addition to brass music, talented musicians played traditional pieces by heart, which were influenced by the Bohemians who arrived in Saalfelden to work on building the railways.

Classical Music: Teachers, clergy and government officials played mainly classical music and string instruments.

“New” Music: Since Saalfelden was marked for many years by the American Allies, so too did a new style of musical enter the landscape. Traditional music was suddenly challenged in the entertainment rooms of the Wallner GI barracks. Musicians from the market Saalfelden formed bands together with “newcomers” to pursue styles such as the foxtrot, swing and boogie-woogie in the local cafés. It was the first time people here were exposed to jazz instruments. Well-known music groups of that era were: BEA-Band, Saalfeldner Big-Band and GÖKO.

Music-making has been part of Leogang since 1890. As a sign of the solidarity and cooperation of the two Pinzgauer municipalities a joint CD was produced by the local traditional costume music groups Bürgermusik Saalfelden and the Trachtenmusikkapelle Leogang.


Folk Dance & Chamber Music

Folk dance: the folk music of the region has always been closely associated folk dance. Long before ballroom dancing, country people danced dances giving expression to their joy. In Saalfelden, it was customary to go to the “Kranzl Dance” on Veterans Day, which was always held after All Saints Day. The children’s dances – Kathrein and Maitanzl has been preserved for years.  The most popular dances to this day are still the Landler, the waltz, the march, the polka and of course the Boarische.

Notable folk dance groups:

  • Volkstanzkreis Saalfelden
  • D’ Spielberger Leogang

Chamber music: had originally long been an exceptional rarity in Saalfelden. Therefore, the “Das Kleine Konzert” was created in 1980.  Besides travelling ensembles and those from Austria and abroad, some native talent has also be presented
