Over the weekend of 4/5 October, we got together along with a few friends to record a new disc for Chandos Records. Revisiting our collaboration with John Wilson from Fanfares, the recording has Festmusik der Stadt Wien by Richard Strauss as its centrepiece and brought together the finest brass-playing talent from across Britain.
Also included on the disc will be new arrangements of vocal motets, again by Strauss and smaller scale transcriptions for the quintet of music by Brahms, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Rubinstein and Franz.
We will keep you posted with the release date.
Here is the line up:
Trumpets – Alan Thomas, Niall Keatley, Philip Cobb, James Fountain, Christian Barraclough, Simon Cox, Ryan Linham, Catherine Knight, Richard Blake, Matthew Williams
Trombones – Amos Miller, Peter Moore, Matthew Gee, Matthew Knight, Richard Watkin
Bass Trombones – Dan West, Paul Lambert
Tubas – David Gordon Shute Sasha Koushk-Jalali
Horns – Andrew Sutton, David Pyatt
