Notes and Editorial Reviews

When we hear Trombone Unit Hannover’s second GENUIN release, we’re reminded of King Arthur and his round table: a dozen or so internationally award-winning young men with glistening metal and flaming audacity. But when the first notes of Handel’s Royal Fireworks overture blaze forth from the speakers, all we can think is “The world is sound!” Whether we’re fans of brass or ballet or orchestra: the virtuosity, drive, and glorious sound of these young knights of the trombone practically sweep us off our feet. Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, and Handel’s Fireworks music: who would ever want to hear these works again in a different version?
