For the first time in the recorded output of Onyx Brass we have undertaken the challenge of a disc of Romantic music. By definition, a large section of the repertoire for brass quintet consists of arrangements of music originally written for other instruments, as this particular combination of instruments as chamber ensemble has only been extant for considerably less than a century.
