Chopin: classically and with a bit of humour

A music project - Fryderyk Chopin compositions for the brass quintet.

Marking the birth bicentenary of the great musical genius, composer and pianist: Fryderyk Chopin falling in 2010, the ACOUSTIC BRASS ensemble have prepared a special project together with pianist Mirosław Feldgebel. CHOP IN BRASS is a concert featuring Chopin compositions exclusively. Have you ever heard the Polonaise in A major or the Romance from Etude in E major transcribed for brass quintet?
Alongside "classical" renditions by Mirosław Feldgebel, the project features Chopin compositions in more flexible and less serious arrangements.

Technical requirements
The hosting institution needs to provide a piano, the remaining brass instruments are brought by the musicians themselves. In case of open-air concerts, also microphones must be provided.
