Canadian Brass advances brass music once again by transcribing Robert Schumann's CARNAVAL and KINDERSZENEN to brass quintet. Just as the originals approach the edge of a pianist's technical abilities, the brass quintet versions of KINDERSZENEN and CARNAVAL - the latter a varitable Mt. Everest of keyboard aspiration -require a level of virtuosity that even the greatest players of a generation ago rarely exhibited, but that is standard for today's brass musicians.

  1. Scenes of my childhood 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2014

    I purchased multiple copies of The Carnaval CD after hearing an interview on NPR. Being a professional musician and knowing of this group since at LEAST the 1980s, I was still blown away at their continued excellence with no peer! As a child playing piano the Schumann reimagined in your fashion brought tears at the sheer brilliance & beauty. No seams in this group! BRAVO once again. As gifts it was a slam dunk. Thanks for making me a hero.
