Mnozil Brass will explore the depths of their instruments once again to entertain you in Cirque. They will be entering the ring to combat the monkey business of daily life with music and humor and transforming the stage into a musical flea circus.
Mnozil Brass has established itself as one of the world’s premiere brass ensembles. With over 130 performances a year, the group has sold out houses from the farthest reaches of the European continent to Israel, China, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, Canada,
and the United States, and has captivated audiences with their blend of immense virtuosity and theatrical wit. No wonder their videos have garnered millions of YouTube views and their fans have traveled countless miles to hear them play.
Their recent hit show was hailed as “seriously funny” and “whimsically brazen.” The show blends original compositions with classical favorites, jazz standards, and popular hits. As always, the repertoire is presented with the group’s iconic humour and
wit in scenes so clever that they would be worthy of Monty Python.
Mnozil Brass take their name from the Gasthaus Mnozil, a restaurant across the street from the Vienna Conservatory, where, in 1992, seven young brass musicians met and began playing at a monthly open mic. Since then, the group has embraced repertoire
for all ages and stages of life: from folk to classical to jazz to pop; all executed with the same fearlessness, immense technical skill, and typical Viennese “schmäh” (almost impossible to find an English translation, but best rendered as a kind
of sarcastic charm!).
In their time away from touring, Mnozil Brass has recorded eight albums and six DVDs. They’ve collaborated on three operetta and opera productions, and composed and recorded the music for the 2006 film Freundschaft. The group has been nominated for the Amadeus
Austrian Music Award and won the prestigious Salzburger Stier Cabaret Prize in 2006.
