Brass Band Recording

Trumpet, trombone, horn and tuba - hardly any instrumental genre in our latitudes is so much associated with solemn festive occasions as brass music. The fact that the solemn effect even potentiates when such a large ensemble as the 24 actors from Paul Schemm are together, were proved by the musicians at a brass band tour in December '17. We hat the pleasure to be part of these tour and recorded the concerts in Neustadt / Aisch, Ipsheim and in the great Roggenburg Abbey.
