PRESS COMMENTS

" The sound that will stay in my mind from Bruges 1993... . For the first time one could hear that the standard 15th-century [wind] ensemble made sense."

EARLY MUSIC NEWS, LONDON, GB

   

"The brilliant group Les haulz et les bas performed a fascinating lecture/demonstration of 15th-century repertoire. ...an outstanding alta band ensemble ... their improvisations and virtuoso playing dazzled listeners."

HISTORIC BRASS SOCIETY, NEW YORK, USA

   

"the panache and impovisatory skills of this trio is absolutely outstanding..."

"...laser-beam tuning and atomic clock timing"

"A unique delicacy was a slide show with live music by Les haulz et les bas. The timing of the slides was finely balanced so that the audience had the time to enjoy each of the beautifully detailled paintings. Whoever has not seen or heared it has really missed something."

DIA - AV TIP, GERMANY

 

"In the last few years the status of mediaeval wind music has risen greatly. This is mainly thanks to the sensational ensemble Les haulz et les bas. They have blown away the negative image of mediaeval wind music once and for all."
