Rudi Pietsch

Rudi Pietsch_2016Rudi Pietsch (Vienna & Lower Austria) - With spontaneity, word play, exceptional knowledge, and the necessary portion of zaniness, this first violin masterfully understands how to work a crowd.  He also has a career: from 1981-2017 he was a researcher and professor at the Department of Folk Music Research and Ethnomusicology at the University for Music and Performing Arts, Vienna. Now (finally) retired.
