BRAZZISSIMO Brass Chamber Music Ensemble
About the ensemble
BRAZZISSIMO is a ten-piece brass chamber music ensemble, sometimes referred to as a brass dectet. We formed in 2001 and have been performing in the Bay Area region for the last 18 years playing a variety of music especially arranged or composed for this brass ensemble medium. We perform classical, jazz, Latin and contemporary works. You might just well ask, "What instruments are represented in the BRAZZISSIMO dectet?" Well, it's a splendid combination of brass instruments including four trumpets (piccolo trumpet, various pitched trumpets and flugelhorn), four trombones (including baritone horn), French horn and tuba.
Our musicians represent some of the finest players in the region. Our members perform in various orchestras, symphonic bands, smaller chamber groups and many too, are music educators.
Beginning our 19th season, our continuous MISSION is to present exciting and true interpretations of brass chamber literature and our GOAL, as always, is to present to audiences the most enjoyable and memorable concert-going experiences possible.
