The ten musicians playing wind instruments in the German Brass band are the musical elite: soloists of renowned orchestras and university lecturers. However, they use their fantastic skills not to please a handful of experts with their playing, but to combine classical music with entertainment repertoire, treating all genres with equal respect and presenting the highest level of performance.

The group, celebrating its fiftieth anniversary in 2024, will begin its performance with Baroque pieces. The first part of the evening will be devoted to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. First, thanks to one of his harpsichord concertos, Antonio Vivaldi will also appear in the programme. During the Weimar period, the German master of Baroque music was involved in, among others, transcribing Vivaldi’s work. We will hear one of such transcriptions. The piece that will be played next will be the famous Aria from the Third Orchestral Suite. The musicians will end this part of the programme with a movement from the famous Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, which went down in history as a wonderful manifestation of the genius of the Leipzig cantor.

Alongside the well-known works of Bach, also present in pop culture, we will hear the overture to La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi, which, when arranged for an ensemble of wind instruments, sounds even more powerful than in the original version. Before the intermission, we will listen to some more American music. First of all, the famous song Maria from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story (which is a reinterpretation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet). Then, Rhapsody in Blue, called “America’s musical kaleidoscope” by George Gershwin, will sound – a milestone in the history of American music. The second part of the concert will be filled with spontaneous energy, German Brass Around the World, in which the musicians will take us on a crazy journey.
