Sonus Brass Ensemble

Full of charm and lightheartedess

With Austrian charm, the five passionate musicians of Sonus Brass have arrived with a mission to shatter the rusty old clischees of the concert hall. Sonus Brass concerts are refreshing oases of innovation. With their music, Stefan Dünser, Attila Krako, Andreas Schuchter, Wolfgang Bilgeri and Harald Schele will invite you to dive in and discover new concert experiences full of surprises, sensitivity, and wit. Their repertoire knows no boundaries. They move with technical agility through all genres of music, from the baroque to the contemporary, building interesting bridges between the eras.

That the musicians of Sonus Brass are consistently well-received is proven through countless concerts in Europe, the USA, and Asia as well as prizes and awards (i.e. „Find it Award“, „YEAH! Young EARopean Award“ etc.). They have partnered with numerous well-known festivals and concert houses including Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival and Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (DE), Lucerne Festival (CH), Lieksa Brass Week (FIN), Bregenzer Festspiele (AUT), Wiener Musikverein and Wiener Konzerthaus (AUT), Philharmonie Luxemburg (LUX), Tonhalle Düsseldorf, Bremen Glocke and Philharmonie Köln (DE), among others.

Where do you find such great musicians, who are also great comedians and actors? It’s a great pleasure for me to stage concerts for Sonus Brass and I’ve taken these men forever into my heart.
