It owes its name to the violinist brothers Johann Schrammel(1850--93) and Joseph (1852--95), who formed a quartet with two friends playing the clarinet and guitar. The tradition they established was carried on later with the clarinet replaced by piano accordion, though in the 1960s there was a dedicated revival of the original instrumentation. The brothers wrote much of their own music, and Johann's march Wien bleibt Wien (1887) became a classic)
    • found: Wikpedia, viewed Aug. 31, 2015(Schrammelmusik is a style of Viennese folk music originating in the late nineteenth century and still performed in present-day Austria. The style is named for the prolific folk composers Johann and Josef Schrammel... A typical Schrammelmusik ensemble consists of two violins or fiddles, a double-necked contraguitar, and a G clarinet... Often a button accordion, called a Schrammelharmonika, is included. Performers strive for a melancholy, "crying", but melodious sound. The style is influenced by folk music from Austria, Slovenia, Moravia and Bavaria)
