Mnozil Brass Chamber Music Masterclass

NEC: Burnes Hall | Directions

255 St. Botolph St.
Boston, MA

Leonhard Paul, of Mnozil Brass, presents a masterclass featuring students from the NEC Chamber Music department, as well as a presentation on the group's background and mission.

Mnozil Brass has established itself as one of the world's premiere brass ensembles and has captivated audiences worldwide with their blend of extraordinary virtuosity and theatrical wit. Mnozil Brass take their name from the "Gasthaus Mnozil," a restaurant across the street from the Vienna Conservatory, where, in 1992, seven young brass musicians met and began playing at a monthly open-mic. Since then, the group has embraced repertoire for all ages and stages of life: from folk to classical to jazz to pop; all executed with the same fearlessness, immense technical skill, and typical Viennese "schmäh" (almost impossible to find an English translation, but best rendered as a kind of sarcastic charm!).

Mnozil Brass will be presenting a performance through the Celebrity Series on February 9th at 8:00pm in Jordan Hall.
