Since 1996 more than 120 members have been colaborating with LAESA. The idea was that exceptionally talented students should be able to play complex original music in an orchestra. All of them are winners of renowned music competitions such as "Jugend musiziert", "German accordion music award" or the "World Music Festival Innsbruck". Many former members are successful musicians today: Susanne Stock, Valentin Butt who made his mark as a film composer, or Yvonne Grünwald with her Band “ELAIZA”.


The fact that LAESA, under the direction of Lutz Stark, receive standing ovations repeatedly is due to their dynamic and colorful sound patterns and their outstanding interpretation of contemporary composers. Hence, the ensemble is a regular feature of akkordeon akut!


This years program among others: "Grazer Variations on a Theme by Georg Friedrich Händel" by the Polish composer Zbigniew Bargielski, "The Monks of Saturn (Part 3)" by Stefan Hippe and the Toccata from the Organ No. 5 F minor by Charles-Marie Widor in an interpretation of Lutz Stark, artistic director and conductor of the ensemble.
