Wake up with Brass and Percussion



Four musicians of the Belgian National Orchestra join forces with as many young instrumentalists for a vibrant family concert. On stage are two energetic percussionists and six enthusiastic brass players. Together they perform a light-footed programme with short works highlighting specific instruments and/or combinations of instruments. Well-known tunes and music yet to be discovered alternate.

The concert opener is a piece written for three trumpets: Benjamin Britten's Fanfare for St Edmundsbury. Marimba and vibraphone are featured in a Carousel composed by Dave Samuels and David Friedman. After that, look out for the Trompeten-Sextett by German romantic composer Oskar Böhme, composed for horn, cornet, two trumpets, trombone and tuba. Work by Bernstein in a new arrangement by Belgian National Orchestra pianist Nico Schoeters and a chorale by Stijn Aertgeerts - who plays the tuba in this concert - provide some surprising moments. A jazz standard, a Slavic dance by Dvořák and a daring crossover between baroque and swing jazz guarantee that you and your family will leave the hall in good spirits!
