Almost6 was born in 2007 as a trumpet and percussion quintet. The festival of the same name was held for the first time in 2012, biennially. Having overcome the pandemic constraints, it is back with master classes, exhibitions, conferences… and concerts. In this 5th edition, the German trumpet player Matthias Höfs is invited, prestigious pedagogue and protagonist of an extensive discography. The closing concert of the festival brings him together with OML in the interpretation of Wolf Kerschek’s “Trumpet Dances”. With musical direction by Reinaldo Guerreiro, the orchestral version of Hoquetus by Lino Guerreiro and the Symphony The Hunting by Joseph Haydn will also be played.
