Mnozil Brass

      Recently, it came to my attention that some brass players have not yet been introduced to the great Mnozil Brass. The group originates from Vienna, Austria (more info here : http://www.mnozilbrass.at/en/) and they are an innovative ensemble combining fantastic playing with acting and singing thus creating a refreshing and quite engaging show for the audience.
The 7 member group has toured all over the world in the past years. I had the chance to hear them in Chicago a couple years ago. Their performance was outstanding, hopefully they will return to the US soon for another tour.

Here we go

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. The goal of this blog is to write about music, musicians, brass players, brass teachers, ensembles, soloist, orchestras as well as to provide information about events, festivals, auditions, masterclasses and many other topics related to music.
There is no better way to start this blog then to offer you a short sample of an amazing recording by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Brass. The unique ensemble sound these phenomenal artists produce on their instruments is second to none ! I would highly recommend this recording to any musician, brass player or not, amateur or professional.

PS. If you are a young student aspiring to become a professional and you don't own this recording you should order it immediately ! I'm not joking...
