Not Just A Trumpet! – a short video extract

Here is a short extract from my recent solo trumpet show, ‘Not Just A Trumpet!’

The event took place in the brand new ‘Music Room’ at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on November 30th, 2015.

This is the introduction to the world premiere of Weltstadt ll by Anthony Gustav Morris for solo Morrishorn, 4ks film, actor, pre-recorded orchestra and electroacoustics. This was the second piece on the programme and also the second of four world premieres given on the night. We cut in as I am introducing Anthony and inviting him to the stage to address the audience about his music. This was also the world premieres of the film and Anthony’s invention, the Morrishorn.

Please feel free to watch and do enjoy!

Brendan’s Latest Solo Project… NOT JUST A TRUMPET!

‘NOT JUST A TRUMPET!’

This concert will be a first for me. Just me and a trumpet versus the audience. No piano, no organ, no orchestra.

Just me!

It will take place on MONDAY NOVEMBER 23rd, 8pm in the brand new MUSIC ROOM in the recently refurbished Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.The event, entitled ‘Not Just A Trumpet!’, will feature no less than four world premieres from internationally renowned composers as diverse, talented and fascinating as can be. I will also be playing that timeless classic of  the electro-acoustic genre, ‘The Transistor Radio of Saint Narcissus’. The performance will include music with film, music with poetry, music with images, music with scripted narrative, music with pre-recorded brass ensemble, music with pre-recorded ‘tape’ and music with live electro-acoustics. There is also a well stocked bar!

Something for everyone, without exception!

The programme is a very exciting one, including modern music which should have something to suit all tastes.
