Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A quintet of utterly superb Italian brass players romp through arrangements of light and cinema classics. I am not going to go into detail but let’s put it this way - you will be entertained, amused, impressed and even outraged by excessive sentimentality or the occasional whoops and shouts of the players.

Gomalan Brass comprise Marco Pierobon, principal trumpet of the Maggio Musicale Opera Orchestra, Florence; Marco Braito, principal trumpet of the Orchestra della Toscana, Florence; Nilo Caracristi, 3rd horn of the Arena Opera Orchestra, Verona; Gianluca Scipioni, principal trombone of the Regio Theater, Turin and Oswald Prader, trainee/probationer tuba of the Frankfurt Opera Orchestra.

Crack playing.
Read more Highly skilled arrangements worthy of Philip Jones at his most unbuttoned. Jollity, the odd tear and exultation."
