Notes and Editorial Reviews

Brahms's glorious music finally enters the canon of one of the world's most popular ensembles. This brand-new recording by the Canadian Brass brings a stately majesty to these popular works.

The Legendary Canadian Brass adds to its storied career and broad discography with this new album. These all-new recordings feature brand-new arrangements of Brahms' keyboard works. The waltzes were arranged for brass quintet and brass octet by Canadian Brass trumpeters Brandon Ridenour & Chris Coletti. The Chorale preludes are arranged by Ralph Sauer.

"All five members of the Canadian Brass are huge fans of the music of Brahms. After making this recording, they now consider themselves uber-fans of this great
Read more Romantic composer. As you listen to these waltzes and chorale preludes adapted for brass instruments, you'll hear this music in a completely new dimension, with new colors, timbres and musical inflections. On this recording of "Brahms on Brass," you'll hear that this ensemble spares no detail in their adaptations bringing a new sound, new life to these pieces, and new enjoyment for the listener." -- Julie Amacher, Minnesota Public Radio
