Andrew Kay & Associates is delighted to present Mnozil Brass - “The greatest ensemble in the blown world.”
“It’s impossible to try and musically categorise Mnozil Brass. They are truly unique. However, there is one thing that their legions of fans all agree on: once you have seen the zany Austrians live, you will never forget them” - 4barsrest.com
Direct from Austria, Mnozil Brass blows audiences away with its unique blend of musical ability, theatrics and originality – and they’re heading to New Zealand for two one-night-only concerts in Auckland and Wellington. Mnozil Brass performs at St James Theatre in Wellington on Sunday 23 September as part of the inaugural New Zealand Brass Festival, and at Auckland’s Aotea Centre on Monday 24 September.
Formed 20 years ago in Josef Mnozil’s small tavern in Vienna, Austria, this ensemble of seven ‘insanely cool’ brass players has been wowing audiences around the world with the sheer variety and diversity of its performances. Mnozil Brass has performed around Europe, at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, at the Salzburg Festival and in the United States, Canada, Taiwan and Japan.
“It is my fervent belief that Mnozil Brass is the greatest brass ensemble in the world today. Mnozil Brass is quite simply the most amazing thing to ever happen in the history of chamber music!“ - Jens Lindemann
Mnozil Brass plays brass music for people from all walks of life and more than once, the band has been referred to as the “Monty Pythons of Music” yet each of the ensemble members is a world-class musician performing in the Vienna State Opera and the Vienna Art Orchestra. In Mnozil Brass, the seven virtuoso players traverse a bewildering variety of musical styles and genres, producing a sound that can replicate anything from a full-scale brass band to the tenderness and a silken beauty of a string quartet.
