hfm brass - the brass ensemble of HfM Detmold
HfM Detmold’s brass ensemble, hfmBRASS, was founded in 2006. It is now conducted by Norbert Stertz, who works with selected students from the brass classes using a line-up of the kind popularised by ensembles such as German Brass. hfmBRASS’s repertoire ranges from the renaissance to pop and jazz. It plays an important part in college life, thanks partly to the versatility of brass instruments, which can add festive glamour to baroque music or create a big-band sound in combination with rhythmic jazz instruments. The ensemble regularly performs outside HfM at venues including Schloss Wendlinghausen, Landestheater Detmold and the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden.
