The sensational Mnozil Brass from Austria will be playing at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday 16th October prior to the announcement of the contest results. We have obtained supplies of their two CDs and they are available on our website now. Ragazzi is the brand new release and Smoke Live is a live recording of a concert from a couple of years ago. Below is an extract from Steven Meads article in British Bandsman of 28th August; Mnozil Brass comprises fantastic players whose appeal crosses every stylistic border, from band music to orchestral brass, folk music, jazz and musical comedy of the most 'side-splitting' kind. The first time I heard Mnozil in Mannheim in 2003 I found myself visually and aurally transfixed from beginning to end and didn't want the concert to finish. I could describe Mnozil's act as a brass opera or a West End show, but it is also a comedy, a choral concert and sometimes a virtuoso brass concert - all at the same time! Incredible.
