Notes and Editorial Reviews
The debut release on Opening Day Recordings of Canadian Brass, one of the world's premier concert attractions. 'Magic Horn' displays the ensemble's trademark virtuosity and versatility in new recordings of music from Masterworks to Motown and also includes a special BONUS VIDEO track. Of special interest is the first recording of JUNO-Awarding winning composer Bramwell Tovey's engaging 'Santa Barbara Sonata' (2004), written for Canadian Brass. 'Magic Horn' also features stunning settings of Piazzolla tangos that set a new standard for brass performance.
