more about SEPP

SEPP

is an octet founded in 2017 by the Austrian jazz clarinetist Christopher Haritzer. It is dedicated to his grandfather Josef Lackner ( commonly known as Sepp Brandstätter ) from Heiligenblut. He was a mountain guide, a member of the mountain rescue team, an avalanche protection pioneer, the chairman of several clubs in the village, a farmer, a passionate musician and a family man with body and soul. Not only did he introduce his grandson to music with his first clarinet fingerings, he became a great role model for Christopher through his fearless and open-minded way of life, always providing tailwind both musically and humanely. Sepp always trusted his instincts adopting innovative and not always easy solutions, for example, to protect his home community from avalanche disasters.

Together with a selected group of artists from Brazil, the Czech Republic, Germany and various regions of Austria (Turkish roots included), Christopher is now paying tribute to this lion-hearted attitude. In the process, inspired by Sepp, the eight musicians courageously set out to explore new paths by bringing their original compositions and lyrics to life.
