WHO ARE SOUND OF BRASS?

"Joy with the music that can be produced with brass instruments" — in essence this is our motivation, why we regularly meet for rehearsals and at one occasion or another   in the context of concerts or on special occasions – perform classical and modern brass music. "We", well these are committed brass players from the region around Wetter (Ruhr), Herdecke and Hagen.

Classic and modern brass music

About 490 years of inspiring music

Why 490 years? As a Christian-influenced brass ensemble, not only secular music but also church music is at the center of our activities. Thus, the oldest surviving source of the hymn "A stronghold is our God" by Martin Luther – the Augsburg "Form and Order of Sacred Song and Psalms" of 1529 – may be considered as a starting point for our musical engagement.

Whether Orlando di Lasso or Giovanni Gabrieli as composers of the Renaissance, whether Heinrich Schütz, Dietrich Buxtehude, Johann Gottfried Reiche, Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frideric Handel, Georg Philipp Telemann, Antonio Vivaldi or Henry Purcell as composers of the Baroque and Classic to composers such as Alexandre Guilmant, Scott Joplin, George Gershwin, Scott Wesley Brown, Jacob de Haan, Matthias Nagel, Martin Westphal or Traugott Fünfgeld – our repertoire of classical as well as contemporary music knows only one limit: playing and listening in particular must give pleasure and should make you want more.
