United by their family ties and with common roots in classical music, they have produced an array of renditions of popular classics, their own compositions, as well as unique arrangements of jazz, pop and world music. The ensemble, which presented its debut album Janoska Style (Deutsche Grammophon) in May 2016 at the Wiener Konzerthaus, now performs programmes showcasing instrumental expertise and improvised art on three continents.
The Janoska brothers, who were born and bred in Bratislava, and their brother-in-law, who grew up in Constance/Germany, enjoy a rich musical heritage and lean on several family generations of musicians, and on their music education in Vienna, where they were taught by renowned professors such as Boris Kuschnir, Pavel Vernikov, Peter Čerman and Alois Posch.
They feel at home in a variety of musical contexts and have made names for themselves in numerous orchestras and ensembles including the Vienna State Opera Orchestra/Vienna Philharmonic, Vienna Art Orchestra, the Philharmonics and the Roby Lakatos Ensemble. Since having founded the Janoska Ensemble, the musicians have channelled their artistic energies into developing their unique “Janoska Style”.
