Harmonic Brass – World’s best brass ensemble
Harmonic Brass, a metal wind quintet, is touring South Africa again this time with a detour to Windhoek and Swakopmund.
The several thousand Harmonic Brass fans all over the world can look forward to another splendid concert programme: concerto festivo.
There will be nothing left to be desired when this extraordinary ensemble performs highlights of classical music as if they had been composed specifically for Harmonic Brass. The band will perform Toccata and Fugue in d-minor by J.S. Bach, O Fortuna from Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana and the Triumphal March from Giuseppe Verdi’s opera Aida.
The five gentlemen know exactly how to give audiences goose bumps. With their keen sense of tone colour and their highly sensitive work interpretations, the brass quintet always guarantees exceptional concerts.
The Bolero by Maurice Ravel suddenly sounds like an original composition for brass, and with Susannata by Mulo Francel, the audience plunge into the mellow sound of Smooth Jazz.
Harmonic Brass tours the world like hardly any other brass ensemble and has visited Carnegie Hall, New York; the Art Center in Seoul; the Endler Hall in Stellenbosch; Kulturaula, Swakopmund and Gewandhaus in Leipzig. The quintet feels at home everywhere and present to their continuously increasing audience a great, brilliant brass sound.
On 9 March, the band will perform at the Namib Primary School Bank Windhoek Kulturaula in Swakopmund. The concert will start at 19h30 and tickets are on sale at Die Muschel Bookstore for N$50. Harmonic Brass will also perform at the Windhoek Playhouse Theatre on 11 March. Tickets are available at Computicket for N$80.
