It is my fervent belief that Mnozil Brass is the greatest brass ensemble in the world today. The first time I saw them live, it filled me with an optimism regarding the future of brass playing that I had never sensed before. In the words of the legendary Doc Severinsen, who has literally seen and done everything there possibly is to do in our industry: “Who are these guys? I have never experienced anything like this in my life.” Their unique blend of sheer virtuosity, humour, staging and overall musical diversity has set them apart from everyone else to the point where they have literally created their own indescribable genre. It is a show filled with originality and joy that could only displease the most cynical of human beings. Well, guess what? They are for real! Some statements are worth standing by regardless of how biased they may seem. Mnozil Brass is quite simply the most amazing thing to ever happen in the history of chamber music!

Sydney Conservatorium of Music – Verbrugghen Hall
A celebration of 20 years of Mnozil Brass, the strangest brass septet ever to emerge from Vienna. With their virtuosic playing & unique Monty Pythonesque comedy no note is too high, no lips too hot, no music too unimportant or too serious not to be taken on by Mnozil Brass.
