Saugerties Pro Musica
   2013 / 2014 Concert Season

September 22nd, 2013


Getting up with Bach, having lunch with Rossini, spending the evening with John Williams…

With their current program one day of music, the musicians of HARMONIC BRASS have composed the probably most creative concert programme they have ever presented to their audience.

One day – HARMONIC BRASS examines a 24 hour’s day for all possible and impossible music styles. The handpicked titles are “unheard ofin the true sense of the word!

Ludicrous, surprising and amusing pieces alternate with timeless classics and personal favorite pieces of the musicians. Unimagined power is set free on stage. Never before have there been used such a variety of instruments as in one day of music, never before the audience has been given more treats for ears and eyes. You will marvel and laugh when HARMONIC BRASS hits the pedal to the metal in their new program.

 Outstanding as the main classical work, there is J.S. Bach’s monumental toccata and fugue in d-minor, brought into quintet format by music magician Hans Zellner in his usual brilliant way. You will also listen to Rossini’s William Tell overture, to own compositions by HARMONIC BRASS and to many, many other pieces…

 At the beginning of the concert, the audience enters a time tunnel, out of which they are happily catapulted two hours later. Anything may happen during this concert, except for one thing: you certainly won’t get bored a minute when the five Munich sound artists distil two hours of music out of a 24 hour’s day and present this sound essence in their incomparable, charming way.

 This has meanwhile got about worldwide: Carnegie Hall New York, Frauenkirche Dresden, Arts Center Seoul, Endler Hall Kapstadt: everywhere in the world, people are looking forward to listening to HARMONIC BRASS and to enjoying great, elegant brass sound.

one day of music – you definitely won’t forget this day!
