Harmonic Brass Munich 6 March 2012


Since 1991, the Harmonic Brass Munich has been renowned for their big, elegant brass sound. Carnegie Hall (New York), Arts Center (Seoul), Leipzig Gewandhaus: the five gentlemen are welcomed and feel at home everywhere in the world. Harmonic Brass travels around the globe playing around 120 concerts a year with changing programmes. An ensemble that spreads good humor: meticulous filing at their performance combined with baroque joie de vivre, serious musical work alternating with giggling boyishness. Five individuals, who couldn't be more unequal, melt to a unity on stage that is hardly ever to be met. Harmonic Brass is supported by an incredibly large number of fans. For the Goethe Institute Harmonic Brass has since 2000 been a cultural ambassador all over the world and the musicians from Munich also hold numerous international workshops. Whoever has been to a Harmonic Brass concert knows what the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” means when writing about an ensemble that "… with its glamorous-virtuous way of performing is one of the best of its kind worldwide."
