The show "Délit de cuivre"
Six virtuoso musicians, coming from prestigious music schools, have put away their tail coats and white dicky bows for the period of a show.
They have put into question their classical education so as to share with us their tricks and jokes.
Sometimes funny, sometimes crazy and sensitive, their talent is still here. And you will be able to understand how far under their skin this talent is engrained.
Through the musical show "DELIT DE CUIVRE", you will meet 6 characters, each with their own personality; should one be shy, quick-tempered, clumsy, authoritative, day-dreamer or seducer.
These six brilliant musicians (5 brass players and 1 percussionist) will welcome you into an anthology of miscellaneous pieces. Diversity is the key word of the show, in front of such an endless succession of surprises appearing with astonishing ease.
Through out the show, without any words, you will be quickly touched by each character. Often burlesque, sometimes poetic, always funny, our musicians are not only playing, but literally living each piece, through clashes, reconciliations, romances, accidents… maintaining rhythm to the show.
"DELIT DE CUIVRE" will please every one of all ages, from music lovers to deaf people, linguistic connoisseurs and non French speakers. A show that leaves space for the music while revealing the hidden face of these mysterious and fascinating human beings: “the Musicians”.
A choreography production by Nicolas HAUT, comedian and producer, whose verve can be appreciated notably in the programmes of the RTS (Radio Télévision Suisse) (“Dicodeurs”, “La soupe est pleine”, “Agence”).
On the music side, from the Toccata for organ of Bach until the Opening of Guillaume Tell, from the Cancan of Offenbach to Star Wars. From the “Ranz des Vaches” to Beethoven’s Fifth, the stock play is tremendous, with some crazy arrangements from Alte Kamaraden of Carl Teike, a piece well-known by brass bands, by Jean-Pierre Hartmann, and original compositions by Antoine Auberson and Frank Urfer, such as a delicious waltz and an incredible musical chairs.
