INN SITU – music and photography in dialogue

For the INN SITU series, we invite international photographers to the region to develop a new exhibition that reflects their encounters with Tyrol and Vorarlberg twice a year. At the same time, for each exhibition we invite outstanding musicians and composers from Tyrol and Vorarlberg to stage a new concert which resonates with the photographer and his or her work. R.E.T. Brass Band, conducted by Andreas Lackner, will prepare a programme resonating with the graphic novel on the border between North and South Tyrol by Carlos Spottorno and Guillermo Abril. The region has a vibrant brass music tradition of excellent quality in both the north and the south. R.E.T. Brass Band stands among the leading ensembles of this music genre.

Three formations, three locations

The dramaturgical response to crossing borders in the exhibition by Artistic Director Andreas Lackner is captivating: in the course of the concert, R.E.T. Brass Band moves through three locations in three different formations. The programme starts with a short concert in the square in front of BTV Stadtforum with all members of the roughly thirty-strong band. Later, there is a smaller ensemble in the building’s foyer, and finally a fading-out in the form of a chamber music quintet in Ton Halle.

R.E.T. Brass Band

Founded in January 2014, this Tyrolean band has set out to perform sophisticated brass band literature at the highest level. Already in the first year of its foundation, the ensemble won its first Austrian brass band competition and represented Austria on a European competitive level. Moreover, it is important to R.E.T. Brass Band to promote young professional brass players in Tyrol. To this end, the Alpine Brass Band Academy was founded. Approximately 50 children and young people immerse in the brass band world on the grounds of Stams Abbey every summer. In 2019, the young musicians of R.E.T. Brass Band brought the European Brass Band Championship title from Montreux to Austria.
