BoB (Best of Brass) was conceived in early 2008 as a means for five brass players to enjoy themselves playing music from classical to contemporary, ancient to modern, pleasant to challenging. BoB has since grown into one of Australia’s busiest and most versatile brass quintets with an annual concert season, 50+ performances through the Musica Viva in Schools program, three major music camps, regional and international tours, and performances at corporate events. BoB is dedicated to presenting works for brass quintet that delight audiences with virtuosity, musicality, and entertainment value.
 

BoB銅管樂五重奏於2008年組成,目的是讓五位銅管樂成員可以籍著這個組合去演奏不同類型的曲目。從古典到現代、從古時到近代、從悅耳到充滿挑戰的作品都能帶他們無比的享受。BoB自成立至今,是澳洲演出最頻密以及最多才多藝的銅管樂五重奏。每年於澳洲演出超過50場由Musica Viva 安排的校園音樂會、3個主要音樂營、地區性及國際性的巡迴演出和不同機構的演出項目。BoB秉承全程投入的宗旨,以精湛技藝、音樂觸覺再融入娛樂元素為觀眾演奏最精彩的銅管樂作品。

“The Danish String Quartet is in a different league altogether, and one that should be attended every time they’re in town.” The Examiner

"They play at the highest artistic and technical level" NewYork Classical Review

 

"We are simply your friendly neighborhood string quartet with above average amounts of beard."

This unusually blonde and bearded young string quartet has been winning the world over with their “warmth, wit, beautiful tone, and technical prowess”(NPR). Known for their diverse programming, incredible versatility and programmes ranging from Beethoven to Adès and Schnittke to Nordic folk tunes, these Danish musicians bring a fresh face to the traditional classical string quartet. The quartet has seen incredible success and rave reviews throughout their ten years together, and we are thrilled to present them in their Hong Kong debut.
