AUSTRALIAN BRASS QUINTET
A Musica Viva Coffee Concert
There's simply nothing like the sound of a great brass quintet -bold, sparkling, and with the air-shaking splendour of perfectly tuned harmonics. With more than 15 years of experience playing together in different ensembles, the five virtuosi of the Australian Brass Quintet bring finesse and sensitivity in equal measure to every concert they play. Their program is a collage of colourful dances, songs and fanfares from around the world, culminating in Joan Tower's glistening Copperwave.
