Bozen Brass

More than just music

"Tyrolean serenity meets Italian temperament" - this is probably the best way to describe Bozen Brass. They are probably one of the most creative and versatile ensembles on the scene and attach great importance to entertaining their audience with varied music from a wide range of genres. In the 35 years of its existence, the South Tyrolean group has developed from a classical brass quintet into a six-member ensemble whose unmistakable sound has been enriched for years by vocals and the use of various non-brass instruments.

Bozen Brass deliberately does not commit itself to any particular musical style. Their repertoire ranges from John Dowland to Sting, from "baroque to blues" in order to reach a wide audience. They can easily offer this range musically, but with brass instruments, vocals and other instruments, they can of course do much more. The band takes a fast-paced and unconventional route through music history and a wide variety of styles, from festive baroque music to virtuoso classical music, grand dramatic opera, playful chansons, musicals, country, Oberkrainer and alpine folk music, jazz, pop and rock. Greats such as Sting, Elvis and Michael Jackson appear on stage. Robert Neumair provides the ultimate swing from time to time on the drums or with a solo on the Styrian accordion. Incidentally, all the pieces have been specially arranged for Bozen Brass by this musical jack-of-all-trades.

Sophisticated music finely played - that's nice, but not enough for Bozen Brass. A concert must not only offer something for the ears. The eyes should also be kept busy. And if the audience is left breathless - all the better. The musicians sing, tap-dance and dance on stage, changing their places and postures with clever choreography. Of course, the right outfit is also part of the show. Cats and chickens also appear on stage with Bozen Brass, and they play until they faint. The musicians are no strangers to fun - which is also evident in their presentations. Anything goes, and there's always a twinkle in the eye. And when the performance venue is not "just" a concert hall, but something extraordinary, the performance stays with the musicians for an extra long time.
