American Brass Quintet

American Brass Quintet Concert in Australia

In their first Australian appearance for four decades, the world’s leading ‘high priests of brass’ bring their rich-toned and perfectly matched sound to this unforgettable, masterly concert, spanning the centuries from the grandeur of Renaissance Venice to the high-octane excitement of the 21st century.

A spectacular demonstration of ensemble virtuosity. The brilliance of their playing is matched by the extraordinary sonics: crystalline definition, airy spaciousness, superb presence and an overall clarity that is positively breathtaking
