Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Ebony Band was founded in 1990 by Werner Herbers. Its core is made up of musicians from the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. The ensemble specializes in modern, adventurous music primarily from the first half of the 20th century.

As is common with the Ebony Band’s releases, live performances are mixed with studio recordings, but each work is produced with care and the quality of each is consistently high. Nicely packaged and well documented as usual by Channel Classics, this will go very well alongside all of the other Ebony Band releases which, as an inquisitive and open minded collector, you must surely already have acquired.

I greatly admire and appreciate the work
Read more of the Ebony Band for both its performing prowess as well as for the important historical aspects of this music. These are all good works that deserve to be heard, and the surround sound recording is superb.
