Music Net presents Mike Oldfield’s classic album performed live in the spectacular setting of St George’s Bristol by Tubular Brass - a 28-piece brass band featuring some of the UK’s finest players. Plus their world premiere performance of Mary Casio by Hannah Peel that combines 70s analogue synthesisers with brass to stunning effect.

 

Tubular Brass is a brand new brass band created to perform contemporary music and develop collaborations with artists from across the musical spectrum. Whilst firmly rooted in the brass tradition, Tubular Brass aims to bring brass band music to a new audience by creating extraordinary projects and collaborations.

 

“It’s called Tubular Bells. I’ve never heard anything like it in my life” John Peel, BBC Radio 1, 1973.

 

Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells is one of the great icons of electronic music. Released in 1973, it became one of the biggest selling albums of all time and famously stayed in the UK charts for an incredible 279 weeks. It regularly appears in Top 100 Albums of All Time lists across the world. In the beautiful and atmospheric interior of St George’s Bristol, Tubular Brass will be presenting a new score for brass, by acclaimed composer, conductor and arranger Sandy Smith, of this pioneering sonic masterpiece.
