Dear Friends of Mnozil Brass!After a successful year of concert tours, we’re now all on vacation. In a few weeks the new concert season will begin and we can’t wait. After 23 years of deep-note duty, our tuba player Wilfried Brandstötter has decided to take the season off. This situation has not been easy for us but we have nonetheless managed to find a replacement equal in every measure. Our new tuba player is called Albert Wieder, hails from sunny Burgenland and has been playing tuba for as long as he can remember, which is pretty long…
When he’s not busy helping Mnozil Brass, he performs with his own formation “Blechhauf’n” as well as the Vienna State Opera. He will take the necessary time off from both during his stint with Mnozil – Blechhauf’n has found a substitute and the Vienna State Opera will not perform any operas with tuba for the year.
All you Albert-Wieder-fans can calm down, he will be returning to Blechhauf´n!
All you Viennese opera-with-tuba-fans can breathe a sigh of relief, he will be back in the Graben!
All you Wilfried-Brandstötter-fans can sit back and relax, Willi will be on stage again with Mnozil for our next program.And we Mnozil remainders are looking forward to a great time with Albert Wieder and hereby welcome him in our midst, which in Mnozil-speak traditionally means the spot on the outside left.
All is well… hooray… and now back to our holiday.
In honor of their 20th Birthday, a movie was produced to celebrate Mnozil Brass’ jubilee including live recordings, interesting background info and a very good close up of all band members. Experience the world of Mnozil Brass and purchase the movie now: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/26953
