Founded in 1992 by graduates of the Vienna College of Music, Mnozil (nozzle) Brass is a truly singular experience and one not to be missed. Though regarded as seriously talented musicians, the members of Mnozil Brass make a living out of not taking themselves too seriously. The Austrian brass septet routinely combines (slapstick) humor with impeccably accomplished musical performances. The ensemble’s shows are characterized by elegant beauty juxtaposed against raucous and riotous eruptions, as the musicians take the audience on a journey spanning multiple musical styles and epochs. Performing Blofeld, Mnozil Brass’ newest work is chock-full of stunts, music and movement.
