Scene Finnmark Presents: Rhapsody in Brass

It with great pleasure we present this concert where we have gathered the finest brass-musicians from the Scandinavian symphony orchestras. The Nordic Brass Ensemble will perform together with musicians from Scene Finnmark, Nikolay Girunyan (cello) and Nils Anders Mortensen (piano). In addition, we present an outstanding instrumentalist of our time, Russian trumpeter and soloist from the Marinsky Theatre, Timur Martynov.

For the Barents Spektakel, The Nordic Brass Ensemble will perform music through history, from the Medieval to popular music from our time. Among the highlights from the concert will be George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” with soloist Nils Anders Mortensen on piano in a new arrangement together with the Nordic Brass Ensemble. The theme for the festival – football – will give color to what you’ll hear during the concert.

Nordic Brass Ensemble was founded 1993 by a group of musicians with a burning desire to play chamber music. The Nordic Brass Ensemble is put together by musicians from leading Scandinavian professional symphony orchestras.
