About us

Viera Blech was established in 2004 as a quartet and now consists of seven high-profile musicians who all studied music at different universities in austria (Conservatory in Innsbruck, Mozarteum Salzburg, Anton - Bruckner Private University Linz, University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna). Martin Scharnagl is the leader of this group, which receives a distinctive and unique style through his original compositions and arrangements. The band has released six successful CD´s that were produced in the own studio by trombonist Alois Eberl.

All musicians play at the highest level of style in all genres and provide a high level of fun and entertainment factor. Viera Blech has now classified internationally in the brass-elite and can look back on many successful concerts throughout Europe (A, D, CH, I, F, NL, B, LUX, S, DK).
