The Mnozil Brass septet
The expression of bored indifference is great!
If you are impatient, just forward 1/2 way to about the three minute spot.
Mnozil Brass is an Austrian brass septet. They play classical, jazz and other styles of music using traditional brass instruments and more unusual instruments such as the keyed trumpet and Wagner tuba. Music is presented with a typical Austrian style of humor which can be approximately characterized as "jet black" and "here and there" absurd. Elements of slapstick exist next to virtuoso brass playing. Austrian and German schlager songs of the 20th century are often caricatured. All founding members were graduates of the renowned Vienna College of Music, who met while playing at the Mnozil pub in Vienna's first inner city district. The band was founded in 1992.
