Folk music by Adolf Zudrell

The “flute player from the Kristberghof”

Flute player Adolf Zudrell in Austria
The flute player from the Montafon region

Authentically and real that is how Adolf Zudrell presents himself, not only as senior manager of the Kristberg Panoramagasthof but also as an enthusiastic musician. When it comes to regional music there is no one in the Kristberg quite like him. His folk music songs cover a wide range from rustic to thoughtful tunes and are available on CD.

Adolf Zudrell, the “flute player form the Kristberghof” is well-known in the Montafon and beyond.

Musical career

In 1960 Adulf Zudrell founded “Die Lustigen Silbertaler” with four of his friends. Band members were:

  • Edwin Erhard (leader & accordion)
  • Franz Zudrell (bass)
  • Herbert Bitschnau (trumpet)
  • Heinz Tschabrun (guitar)
  • Adolf Zudrell (clarinet)

“Die Lustigen Silbertaler” had their first official performance at the Heimatabend in Schruns and it went so well that soon after that they were invited to perform in Germany, Switzerland and the rest of Austria.

The musical career of the jolly quintet went uphill form there until the decided to split up in 1972. Adolf Zudrell fully dedicated himself to his hotel, the Kristberg Panoramagasthof.

Musical highlights

  • 1966: Live appearance on “Autofahrer unterwegs” at the Wiener Stadthalle
  • 1967: First TV appearance in Gaschurn. 
  • 1993: Soon after his training to become a Vorarlberg forest guide Adolf Zudrell started with the miner's tour through the St. Agatha chapel. Not long after the first tours he decided to enhance the cultural-historic tours through the former mining period on the Kristberg by playing the recorder for the participants.
