They’re being interviewed by Sean Rafferty ahead of their concert at Wigmore Hall this Saturday, 22nd, 7.30pm. Audience (and Trio) favourite, Beethoven’s “Archduke” Op.97 is paired with Schumann’s “Phantasiestücke” Op.88 and Haydn’s E-flat trio HXV:30. You can join the event on Facebook, and buy tickets from Wigmore’s website here.
Tune in to Radio 3 tomorrow to hear Onyx Brass perform from their new CDs “Canite Tuba” and “Time to Time”.
“Time to Time”, which The Guardian called “an eclectic ear-opener of a disc, virtuosically played”, was released by Meridian records and features music by Ives, Copland and Barber as well as new music by Stuart MacRae, Joe Duddell and Tim Jackson. The luscious baritone voice of Mark Stone, currently appearing as the title role in Don Giovanni at Deutsche Oper, Berlin features in a number of beautiful new arrangements for voice and brass quintet.
“Canite Tuba” and all the individual tracks are available to download now from Amazon and iTunes. and you can buy the “Time to Time” CD via the Onyx Brass website.
You can catch Onyx Brass on ‘In Tune’ at 4:30pm on 90 – 93FM or on Digital Radio or TV, or listen to the programme for 7 days afterwards on BBC iPlayer.
