Notes and Editorial Reviews

Herman Bäumer, who himself combines a career as a conductor with playing the trombone in the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra presents his 'brass partout' ensemble in their second recording for BIS. The high level of technical ability of the players is more than matched by the musicality of the ensemble as whole. 'Brass Partout' started out as a student ensemble but the 21 players are now distinguished orchestral musicians who get together from time to time to perform music for brass ensemble. The present disc presents a 'Russian' programme with such listener-friendly composers as Rimsky-Korsakov, Khatchaturian and Glazunov but also including a substantial work by that pioneer of the avant-garde in Russia, Edison and Denisov.
