Canadian Brass Classical Recording Bundle (6 CD's)

Canadian Brass has developed a core repertoire for brass quintets based upon classical masterpieces.  The recordings in this package represent some of our best classical music recordings.

ECHO; GLORY OF GABRIELI - This recording displays the Brass's more serious side with an album exploring the Baroque innovations pioneered by Gabrieli at Venice's Basilica San Marco. Because of the Basilica's unique design, which included two choir lofts separated by a cavernous interior, it was difficult for choirs to sing in unison. Gabrieli used this to his advantage in his music for brass, creating works where one brass choir echoes or responds to the other -- a technique that proved immensely popular in his time and is recreated in our own by Canadian Brass. Contents include: Samuel Scheidt 1. Echo / Giovanni Gabrieli 2. Canzon septimi toni 3. Sonata pian e forte / Claudio Monteverdi SUITE FROM L'ORFEO 4. Toccata 5. Prologo-Dal mio Permesso amato 6. Lasciate i monti 7. Vieni Imeneo 8. Ecco Orfeo 9. Messaggiera y Pastore 10. Tu se' morta 11. Ahi caso acerbo! 12. Chi Ne Consola 13. Vanne Orfeo 14. Moresca  / Giovanni Gabrieli 15. Canzon primi toni 16. Canzona da sonar II 17. Canzon in double echo 18. Canzona da sonar IV 19. Canzon septimi e octavi toni.

CARNAVAL - 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. When using a mobile device please "SWITCH TO STANDARD VIEWING' at the bottom of the page to see video on HOME PAGE and product pages. Contents: Carnaval, Op. 9 by Robert Schumann 1.
