Reviews


“The ensemble dispatches these piece with aplomb, engaging the listener with carefully crafted interplay and beautifully translucent textures, yet able to engage the full magnificence of their instruments at a moment's notice!”

“It showcases both the ensemble's virtuosity and lyrical playing in equal measure, proving a fitting conclusion to this exceptional release. Thoroughly recommended!”

“Superb playing from living legends of the London orchestral brass scene. In these fantastic arrangements it’s sometimes hard to believe these pieces weren’t originally scored for brass. The musicianship throughout is second to none & the sound is an absolute treat.”

Joby Talbot
Composer (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, The Winter’s Tale, Theatre of Blood)
