Stefan Wurz experiences music in the scope of tension between earnest „classical“ or as the case may be „new“ music and „light“ music such as jazz, rock and pop. His compositions liaise the wide knowledge of classical and modern principles of composing – acquired through his musicological studies – and the feeling of rock, jazz and world music.
