Notes and Editorial Reviews

The legendary composer John Williams gets the Filmharmonic Brass treatment in this brand new release featuring the all-star New York based brass ensemble. Consisting of three Trumpets (Dominic Derasse, Hugo Moreno, Charles Porter) two Trombones (Joel Vaisse, Nathan Mayland) French Horn (Chris Komer) and Tuba (Joe Terwilliger), Filmharmonic Brass "blows away" the Williams classics including The Main Title and Imperial March from Star Wars, The Raiders March from Indiana Jones, the Theme from Jurassic Park. They even pull off an amazingly delicate rendition of the Theme from Schindler's List. Of course, even the Theme from Jaws gets the brass treatment. The arrangement and performance of Hedwig's theme from Harry Potter exemplifies Read more the mastery of brass playing like none other. This album is a must for any fan of John Williams and any fan of Brass Music. Read less
