Notes and Editorial Reviews

What could be warmer, rounder, more illuminating, fuller – to put it briefly: more beautiful! – than a large brass ensemble. This is the impression one has from the GENUIN debut CD of 10forBrass, an ensemble that has won a number of prizes. From the first bars until the end, it is filled with wonderful arrangements! These young brass players, wildly popular with the public, really let themselves go: from the Renaissance to jazz, from the Dukas Fanfare to the Ritz in New York. And they flatter our ears: from Debussy's tender sounds to the enraptured Mahler lied. A magnificent disc, and not only for brass fans!
