With their foray into the world of casual music, the ensemble “Embracement” provided their listeners with the best of music at a high level of entertainment. Attender Culturing had deliberately chosen the “Bühnenfieber” program from the composer’s extensive repertoire and thus clearly catered to the audience’s tastes at Church of the Redeemer.
Sunday afternoons opened with “Puttin’ on the Ritz”—the jazz standard published by Irving Berlin in 1929—”Getting ready for the Ritz” or, more freely translated, “dressing properly”. In any case, Lukas Stolz, Trumpeter, Christian Scholz, Trumpeter, Jakob Noor, Horn, Juliet Blum, Trombone and Robert Schulz, with tuba, appeared to be Leipzig’s five brass players fully clothed – colorful in their clothing. Excited and very happy to play, at ease in her restraint and in the way she makes music.
One of the most famous Scottish folk songs, “The Blue Bells of Scotland”, was a humorous arrangement for a brass quintet, which was amusing because of the many thematic approaches in the trumpet, until all the instruments were played together in a song about bluebells. Returns.
Jazz Suite No. 1, by Dmitry Shostakovich, written in 1934 as a sign of his participation in the Soviet Union’s Jazz Commission, stood in the middle of the concert, next to an excerpt from the famous musical “West Side Story”. A musical tour of the still young Soviet Union in 1950s New York – by Leonard Bernstein. The Mariah, Tonight and America tracks met with the audience’s open ears, sometimes familiar tunes in somewhat unusual brass sound. It delved into the world of Argentine tango with “Estampas de Palermo” by Jose Carly. In the tango “Piazza Sicilia”, in particular, the wonderful acoustics of the Church of the Redeemer revealed a rich, soft sound of wind instruments.
The final track, “ABBA Go Brass”, written by Alan Ferney, appeared as a copy of the previous program. Played in an energetic and joyful mood by five brass players, the conclusion “Thanks to the Music” became one of the highlights of an equally well-tuned audience. Enthusiastic applause demanded West Side Story to be repeated twice – “One Hand – One Heart” and, as a more special treat, “No Kissing” from Prince in an arrangement made especially for the embellishment.
