HAN 24.04.2022 Brass Promenade © Goethe-Institut Hanoi

Sun, 24.04.2022

20 Uhr

Manzi Exhibition Space (Hanoi)

Using the three movements of Gustav Holst’s Suite No. 1 as a recurring theme of three locations, Brass Promenade features a diverse mix of repertoire ranging from Italian baroque, Russian romanticism, to the 20th century fanfares and operas, finishing with new arrangements of contemporary works including some Vietnamese favorite melodies.

Indulging in a unique blend of experience: listening, walking, climbing the stairs, the audience will discover a new face of brass music, quite distinct from section identity associated with their role in symphony orchestras. This performance by Hanoi Brass Community will surprise through unexpected transformations and interesting interactions with spaces, explore various acoustics from a chamber room of the venerable  French villa to a rough terrace resembling a contemporary artist’s studio -  from indoors to outdoors, on the ground then up in the high-rise.

This event is part of manzi’s art programme supported by Goethe-Institut.
