‘Palma Brass’ quintet plays Formentera

cartell 2021 palma brassThe Formentera Department of Culture is pleased to report that from 8.00pm on Friday 4 June, Sant Francesc’s sa Senieta will welcome a performance from “Palma Brass” — an ensemble of seasoned professional brass musicians from the Balearic Symphonic Orchestra and the city of Palma’s municipal band that set about, in 2018, filling what they saw as a void in the musical scene.

Organisers say Palma Brass concerts span originals and new arrangements of the better-known entries in the classical and modern repertories. No reservations are required and admission is free. Capacity will be limited.

With their latest project, “Musical Journey from the Old World to the New”, the group underscore the versatility of the brass quintet format as they tackle classics from three of Italian music’s leading lights: Verdi, Puccini and Rossini. In “New World”, listeners are plunged into the stark contrast of the Wild West with a fanfare for brass by the American great, Eric Ewazen. The group bids farewell to the courtyard crowd at sa Senieta with a tribute to one of contemporary Latin music’s most celebrated figures. The group tackle plethoric Latin rhythms and Cuban jazz in what is perhaps the toughest four-piece adaptation of Grammy Award-winning Cuban composer Paquito de Rivera.

Palma Brass is Samuel García and Jaume Blázquez on trumpets, José Fortea on horn, Jean Christoph Brunet on trombone and Tobias Isern on tuba.
