To the question "Why not: Tuba & Harp?" the only people who could react with incomprehension are hardcore sourpusses, Acid House fans from Lower Bavaria and chain-smokers plagued with heartburn from the Outer Hebrides. What instrumental combination would be better suited to awaken Maganini's Crocodile Lady or Massenet's Greek hetaera Thaïs with its curves? For Music Council prize winners Andreas Martin Hofmeir (tuba, "LaBrassBanda") and Andreas Mildner (harp), instrumental perfection and ideal ensemble playing are only the basic conditions for their second GENUIN CD. Sensitivity and humour characterise both of them, two of the most brilliant practitioners of their respective instruments. World Tuba Day is on the first Friday in May. Care to join us in the celebration?
