While the luminaries of the air piano have been switching to the chromatic accordion since the 1930s, the natives of the pre-Alpine marshes between Rothenthurm and Muotathal have been stubbornly feasting on the local version of the diatonic hand organ: a monstrosity that has grown wildly for over 100 years, poor in constructive logic and devoid of any register-fired sound palette ? just an idiosyncratic folding trestle.
Balz Schmidig, Stumpä Seebi, Rees Gwerder, s?Piitschä Wiisel, Nauer Märtel ? these are roughly the grandfathers of the Central Swiss Örgeli school who are gathered in the feeding trough of the quartet Rampass, founded in 2001. Stylistically, Rampass basically moves along the rustic, rippling track of a cross-conservative two-stroke engine with a turbocharger.
Reto Grab: Schwyzerörgeli
Markus Flückiger: Schwyzerörgeli
