- Classical:NEXT 2013
The two musicians Judith Reiter (viola, voice) and Julia Schreitl (reeds, voice) got to know each other while studying at the
University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. As flatmates, they started to make music together, but in the beginning they both played different instruments.
The duo JuJu was born after both of them came back from an exchange study programme abroad in fall 2007. At first, they mainly improvised together but after some time, both of them wrote compositions and tunes especially for this duo and played many performances between 2008 and 2010.
The year 2011 was dedicated to the production of their CD “Short Stories“, which was finally released at Preiser Records, Vienna in January 2012. Furthermore, JuJu was selected for the „New Austrian Sound of Music“ in the category Jazz for the years 2012 and 2013, a programme that supports young Austrian musicians playing abroad, presenting and representing Austria's dynamic music scene.
