ürg Kienberger was born in 1958 in Sils-Maria. He is a renowned theatre musician, cabaret artist, actor and singer. The self-proclaimed «music player» enraptures audiences with his inimitable tenor and virtuoso playing of just about anything with keys. He has provided music for more than 125 productions, mostly live as one of the players; his recitativist in Mozart’s «Figaro» and his work with Christoph Marthaler («Murx den Europäer!») are the stuff of legend. As a soloist- always in cooperation with his wife Claudia Carigiet- too («Ich bin ja so allein»), the self-taught Kienberger shows himself to be an artist of exquisite irony and infinitely delicate musical touch.
