Ode to Joy – brass music from various centuries
Helsinki Brass Quartet has become known for their great skills and emotions as well as their capacity to cross-over different genres of music. The sound of the brass band will be great in the excellent acoustics of Siuntio Church!
The Helsinki Brass Quartet consists of talented professional musicians Janne Ovaskainen, trumpet, Tommi Hyytinen, French horn, Teppo Alestalo, trombone, and Miika Jämsä, tuba. The band had its previous performance at Lux Musicae in 2018.
The Helsinki Brass Quartet, which has been operating for twenty years, has toured abroad, performed at domestic festivals but also at other festivals in London, St Petersburg and in France. Ensemble’s first record H.B.Q. (2011) consists of Finnish compositions for the brass band. Christmas bells together with baritone Jorma Hynninen (2012) have been heard on the radio every Christmas since its release.
At Lux Musicae concert the audience will have a pleasure to enjoy a premiere! That is Tommi Hyytinen’s new work!
