Published online so that everyone can share the birthday cake… Happy Birthday!

The Vienna Brass Connection’s new program with works by Anton Bruckner, Richard Strauss, Giacomo Puccini, John Williams, Billy Joel etc.
The year 2024 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of composer Anton Bruckner. For the Vienna Brass Connection, this is more than a reason to celebrate and so there will also be a Bruckner focus in the varied concert program to pay tribute to this powerful music. And this etc. offers a unique blend of soundscapes, rousing rhythms and emotions expressed through music that tell stories but leave room for interpretation and stimulate the imagination etc. The musicians of the Vienna Brass Connection are members of top orchestras (Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Vienna State Opera, Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Vienna Volksoper, Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, Tonkünstler Orchestra of Lower Austria, Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg, Graz Philharmonic Orchestra, WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, etc.) and are active in a wide variety of ensembles. Although their professional careers are widely scattered, they all share a long-standing friendship and a wide range of musical interests etc. – this etc. is probably the recipe for the Vienna Brass Connection, which plays selected music that reflects the whole spectrum of life: sometimes loud, sometimes quiet, sometimes cheerful and sometimes sad, sometimes high, sometimes low, sometimes Bruckner etc.
The ground was shaking… The Vienna Brass Connection inspires at the Nieder-Moos Concert Summer with esprit and incredible variety!
(…) The Vienna Brass Connection shows very vocally and powerfully how virtuously they master their instruments, but can also be discreet and restrained when necessary. (…) Here are full-blooded musicians at work, perfectly attuned to each other. (…) The last musical contribution puts the completely enthusiastic audience almost in ecstasy, the floor vibrates again… (…) – Ditte von Dietze, Lauterbacher Anzeiger (Photos & Article)
Sound magic. (…) artistry and intensity of sound (…) in a brilliant manner (…) unreal and surreal at the same time, music that has to be played as well as the 20 instrumentalists of the Brass Ensemble (…) instrumental finesse (…) – Dr. Ferruccio Delle Cave, South Tyrolean daily newspaper “Dolomiten”.
The VIENNA BRASS CONNECTION has just released its second CD called “Open Minded”. Markus Bebek interviews Stefan Obmann, trombone player and organisational mastermind of this extraordinary ensemble for THE BRASS HERALD, a international magazine for brass musicians.
