Bergen Brass Quintet
Thursday 1 November
Universitetsaulaen i Bergen
At the Great Hall of the University of Bergen, the Bergen Brass Quintet takes us on a journey through jazz, the Hollywood movie and the Broadway musical with a Finnish tango and an Italian tarantella thrown in.
The brass quintet offers composers an irresistible mix of agility, colour and warmth, which is one reason the genre is proving increasingly popular. André Previn, celebrates as many musical styles as possible in his Four Outings. Jukka Linkola goes for rhythmic vitality in his Brass Quintet No. 2. As ever, with George Gershwin we hear some of the most gorgeous, singing melodies ever written.
