Navigation for Brilliant Brass

Whether it’s jazz, orchestral, solo or band music, brass-playing is in pretty good heart, both in NZ and around the world. Starry soloists, smooth ensembles and inspired composers are leading the way for thousands of people in the brass community.

Principal trombone of the NZSO David Bremner hosts a series looking at the brilliant world of brass.

David Bremner profiles six ‘Legends of Brass’ – those people who inspire and lead others and set new standards in performance and education. In the first programme he talks with iconic NZ jazzman Rodger Fox about everything from rocking with Quincy Conserve to 40 years leading the Rodger Fox Big Band.
