Gomalan brass quintet (Italy)

Gomalan Brass Quintet - Soul Bossa Nova live in Rome
Geüpload door gomalanbrass

Play well while working towards the best possible results: this is the aspiration that brought together, almost by chance, five musicians from different towns in Italy, who in the past have played, and currently still play, as principal musicians in some of the most prestigious orchestras in Europe - to name but some, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Munich Radio Orchestra, the Frankfurt Opera, La Scala in Milan, the Santa Cecilia Academy, the Maggio Musicale Forentino, Teatro San Carlo in Naples, Teatro Regio in Turin, the Italian Swiss Radio Orchestra in Lugano, and the National Symphony Orchestra of the RAI national radio and TV -, working with some of the world’s greatest living conductors, such as Metha, Muti, Maazel, Pretre, Sinopoli, Giulini, Chung…
The Gomalan Brass Quintet, as we know it today, was formed in 1999; motivated by a desire to express their maximum artistic potential, the group performs a repertoire that goes from Renaissance to contemporary music, yet by no means snubs genres at times considered less refined.
Just two years after starting out, in November 2001, the group won one of the world’s most prestigious awards: the first prize at the "Town of Passau" International Contest in Germany, receiving enthusiastic praise from renowned international brass celebrities such as Roger Bobo, David Ohanian, Steaven Mead, Dale Clevenger and Froydis Ree Wekre, all of whom consider the Gomalan Brass one of the most captivating and exciting groups on the international circuit.
A regular presence at the most important concert halls and main Italian musical festivals, (Festival di Stresa, The Sounds of the Dolomites, Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, the theatres of Bolzano, Parma, Bologna, Turin, Milan, ...), the Gomalan Brass has also performed in the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Germany, Greece and Switzerland, and has given Master Classes at the Tanglewood Institute of Music, at Toronto University of Music, at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and at the University of Music in Glasgow.
Numerous radios have broadcast concerts and pieces by the Gomalan Brass Quintet, to name but a few: Bayerisches Rundfunk, Radio Vaticana, Radio Canada and Radio Rai Tre (for whom the group has performed several world premières).
The Quintet has made two CDs, (with a third currently under production), produced by Summit Records, today one of the world’s most prestigious labels for brasses

Opus 5 (Switzerland)

Opus 5 Brass Quintet, which was founded by Bertrand Galley in May 2007, has a colourful repertory of chamber music that ranges from the Renaissance up through the contemporary period, and even includes jazz.
The rich and extensive span of Opus 5 Brass Quintet’s timbre has inspired musicians either to compose or to arrange musical numbers especially for their performance. These compositions let the musical ensemble explore fully the deep, warm registers ofthe trombone and of the tuba as well as the crystalline brilliance of the piccolo trumpet.
Mindful of the pedagogical needs of school children, Opus 5 Brass Quintet has specially designed programmes meant to encourage exposure to the fine world of classical music for youth audiences. Well-known actors and musicians take part in these educational performances. Of late, the group has performed such time-honoured work as Francis Poulenc’s Histoire de Babar le petit elephant, Sergey Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, and Camille Saint-Saën’s Carnaval des Animaux.

Quatuor1084 (France)

The quatuor 1084°C merged together in 1998 at the Paris Conservatoire where they were awarded unanimouly the first price of chamber music in June 2000. Stemming from four personnalities of high calibre this music group originally classic could rapidly extend their repertory . Playing con brio and enthusiastically a self-made arrangement of the String Quatuor n°1 of Tchaikovski or the music of the film Rabbi Jacob, no anachronism frightens them: they are able to make a”coming back to the future”of nearly four centuries in only one hour and a half.
The result of a regular work and of a constant dialogue their catalogue is made in the image of their character: varied programmes for varying occasions and places. Since beginning 2006 the association” Brass à la carte” promotes 1084° particularly by reviving their first show “ZOOM on the screen”. Organized by the “Musical Youth of France “ the made a two-year-tour in the whole country.

Berlioz Historical Brass

Berlioz Historical Brass dedicates itself to the exploration and presentation of early 19th century brass instruments. The inspiration for the ensemble stems from a Boston Symphony Orchestra performance of Hector Berlioz's Messe solennelle. Maestro Seiji Ozawa set a precedent by including a period instrument in the orchestra--the serpent played by Douglas Yeo--thus demonstrating that the modern symphony and chamber music settings could provide a venue to inform audiences of these unique brass instruments. The ensemble now includes the presentation of twelve instruments--keyed bugle, natural horn, trombone, buccin, serpent, serpent Forveille, serpent a pavillon, Russian bassoon, cimbasso, bass horn, ophimonocleide, and ophicleide--all used during Berlioz's time and most appear in his Grande traite d'instrumentation .

Berlioz Historical Brass players, in what has become an informal collective of musicians, perform in modern and period orchestras and serve as editors, columnists, and authors of historical brass resarch. The ensemble also serves to encourage and assist in the production of recordings and the publication of early 19th century editions of sacred and harmonie music for historical brass.

Norlan Bewley (The Low Brass Ensemble)

Norlan Bewley, Low Brass Artist (trombone, euphonium, and tuba family of instruments), is a new breed of brass player specializing in performance on all of the low brass instruments. For the past twenty years he has had extensive experience teaching, performing on, and composing for low brass, developing an unparalled perspective, insight, and approach toward these instruments. Through years of private teaching and performance, he has developed direct and effective methods of instruction that address the most basic and difficult areas of low brass playing in a manner clear to all, from beginners to professionals. In his private teaching alone, for the past 10 years Norlan has given more than 700 individual low brass students over 23,000 private lessons. A champion of the instruments, he is dedicated to the improvement, advancement, and increase of opportunities for every aspect of low brass education and performance.


Low Brass Ensemble Music is a new type of listening and performance opportunity. The musical sound is a cross between the Trombone Choir and the Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble, which are both popular groups. They each exclude the other half of the low brass section however, so the goal of the Low Brass Ensemble is to allow all of the low brass instruments to participate in one group.

The instrumentation for the Low Brass Ensemble is trombone 1, trombone 2, euphonium, and tuba. The music is all 4-part writing, so the Low Brass Ensemble can be used for chamber music as a quartet, or with multiple players on each part as a large ensemble, even using the entire low brass section if desired. From an educator's perspective, it can be an easier ensemble to assemble than an all trombone or all tuba/euphonium group, plus it involves all of the low brass section.

Here, with the faith and dedication of Lele Veronesi (drums), Maurizio de Gasperi (piano rhodes) and Andrea Taravelli (electric bass) experimented the French horn’s potentials, tackling some standard jazz and mainly some compositions by Giovanni Hoffer himself."The French horn is still chained to classical music and looked upon with suspicion in the jazz scene.I have no idea where this journey will lead me, I like sailing towards the horizon.I don’t define my music, I let it go by itself, when it wants and in the way that suits it best."

International Brass (Germany)

INTERNATIONAL BRASS - five musicians from four nations sharing one common language: music. These cultural differences go towards creating a group with a unique appeal. Together, they help to inspire entertainment of the highest quality.

Willy Huppertz (The Netherlands), Waldemar Jankus (Lithuania), Wilhelm Junker (Germany), Thomas Lindt (Germany) and Matthew P. Hall (United Kingdom) combine to bring a rich musical diversity to the stage. From baroque to rock; from romantic organ works to big band jazz; from Mozart to Mancini - no musical genre is off-limits. And, above all, the consistent factor remains music making of the highest quality.Such a comprehensive repertoire allows the ensemble to provide programmes suitable for a wide range of occasions, from church concerts to open air festivals.

Original music for brass quintet does not provide music for every occasion. The ensemble has consequently tailor-made much of its own repertoire - striving to maintain the essence of each original composition whilst simultaneously creating a new work in its own right. Amongst many of the exclusive arrangements made for INTERNATIONAL BRASS it is possible to find some real gems.

Opus Lib Quintet (Canada)

This high profile ensemble brings their own vision to classic jazz repertoire. This includes the classics like Bernstein and Gershwin, but also encompass some noted jazz composers : Mingus, Ellington and others. This is not a jazz group but rather an ensemble interpreting jazz in a classical fashion. Not only we do perform by ourselves, we also team up with guest artists. We are also setting up some special events with some symphony orchestras.
Opus Lib is also working on various pedagogical projects aimed at ages from elementary school up to university level. This way we could combine a concert with a workshop or small school presentation. The topics for the workshops could be not only brass instrument technique, but also arranging, composing for film, conducting, jazz performance practice, contemporary music performance tips, and so on.
The quintet members are talented in many ways. For instance, some compose and arrange for shows and films. They provide the Opus Lib Brass Quintet with original arrangements. Others are performing in major ensembles and orchestras touring everywhere on the planet.

Miraphone Tuba Quartet (France)

Four Frenchmen, who play the tuba: Philippe Wendling, Patrick Couttet, Philippe Gallet and Olivier Galmant show as Miraphone Tuba Quartett, what the often too little appreciated instrument is capable of.
For 14 years now, the artists have been giving concerts in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and the USA.
With that, they received such excellent reputation as a quartet, that amazed even experts in music of brass instruments.
The four musicians already met several times in the course of their education, but it was not until 1993, when they again met at the National Conservatory in Paris, that they got to know each other very well, personally as well as musically.
Although four tubas are not a customary cast, the musicians want to show that, also with these instruments, it is possible to offer an entertaining repertoire.

The Extreme Trombone Quartet (Hungary)

The EXTREME Trombone Quartet was founded in 2004 by students and graduates of the Music Academy. The four excellent young trombonists joined together in a regular trombone quartet formation: 3 tenor and a bass trombone. They were brought together by friendship, love of brass music and the wish to express their common musical message to create their own performance. The band intends to exploit the spectrum of brass chamber music as well as stepping across the boundaries of the genre. This is demonstrated not only by the carefully compiled arrangements but also by their own self-written pieces all of which require high-level, virtuoso playing.

Mr. Jefferson’s Bones (USA)

Mr. Jefferson's Bones began in 2001 as an off-season weekly sectional rehearsal of the trombone section of the Charlottesville and University Symphony Orchestra (CUSO) of Charlottesville, Virginia. CUSO's then Principal Trombonist, Robert Graham, aspired to build a low brass section that was highly sensitive to orchestral section playing and intonation.
Soon therefater, the group expanded its purpose to perform publicly by building up its repertoire of Christmas music, often playing in December to benefit the Salvation Army's kettle drives, Christmas Tree lighting ceremonies, and the residents of various Charlottesville nursing homes. In addition, MJB often performed for worship services and choir concerts at a number of area churches, and in 2003, collaborated with both Sojourners UCC and First United Methodist of Charlottesville to create an original worship musical entitled "God's Trombones: Jazz and the Gospel."

Rafael Mendez

Rafael Méndez was born on March 26, 1906 in Jiquilpan, Mexico. His musical training began when he was five, when his father needed a trumpet player for the orchestra comprised of family members. The Méndez orchestra was a popular performing group and appeared regularly at festivals and community gatherings. Rafael loved the trumpet and actually practiced more that his father allowed.
In 1916, the Méndez orchestra performed for guerrilla leader Pancho Villa. He was so taken with the family orchestra, that he “drafted” the family into his army. Rafael quickly became Villa’s favorite player, and after several months demanded that Méndez stay with the rebels, even after the rest of his family were allowed to return home. Months later, Méndez was released from the rebel army, and he began to perform in several travelling circus bands, in addition to the family orchestra. He joined the Mexican army in 1921, where he played in the army orchestra.

The Dragacevo Trumpet Players Festival (Serbia)

Guca Trumpet Festival was conceived by young educated people, enthusiasts wishing to brake the monotony of life in a small place as Guca of time was- far away and deep in a province. Their spiritual and cultural needs were far beyond the life of temporary socio-political events and activities. It was good luck for them to come to an idea to organize such a unique event as the Trumpet Festival, and it was also good luck for the Festival that that it attracted so many industrious and creative followers-devotees of authentic folklore and tradition.
The first Trumpet Festival was held on 14th October 1961 in Guca. It was held on the day of the Shroud of the Holy Mother in the churchyard during the last traditional festival that took place here. Young boys and girls thought that this festival gave them a chance for the last meeting. The organizers of the Trumpet Festival believed that, this way, they would have audience for their programme as well. The day was sunny and warm. The interest of the people exceeded all expectations of organizers.
