Salaputia Brass

Do You Love Brass?

They modestly call themselves “tiches” (lat. salaputia). Nevertheless, as their musical energy comes from the heart, or to be more exact from the lips, nothing seems too difficult for them.

In numerous concerts the audience were swept off their feet by the newcomers, among others at Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival, Brass Festival Meran or on ARTE’s TV-show “stars of tomorrow” („Stars von morgen”) on which Salaputia Brass were guests. Through their theme-based program, they easily achieve the balancing act between musical performances at the highest stage as well as entertainment for every audience.

The core of the Salaputia repertoire consists of original music specifically composed for them as well as profound arrangements. The brass ensemble’s aim is to contribute to the brass music literature and to bring modern brass music to light in the world of classic concerts. An asset for the ensemble in this regard is its member Peter Doerpinghaus, a creative composer and arranger. Apart from their performances as Salaputia Brass, individual members obtain several solo positions in top ranking German orchestras such as the Konzerthaus Orchestra Berlin, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Gürzenich-Orchester of Cologne and Philharmonic State Orchestra Hamburg.

Whether they perform with ten brass players and an additional percussionist, as a classic quintet (Salaputia Brass Quintett), in cooperation with the trumpet player and jazz singer Jeroen Berwaerts (CD “Signals from Heaven”) or with cathedral organist Sebastian Küchler Blessing – you will love the sound of the tiches!
