Brass Quintet Canadian Brass
The virtuosi of Canadian Brass have made the brass quintet an exciting vehicle for serious concert music. The quintet has a long history of recording classical repertoire. They have a special affinity for Baroque music, which requires the musical structure that has become the Canadian Brass' trademark.
Their more than 60 recordings include works by Purcell, Vivaldi, Gabrieli, Pachelbel, Beethoven and Wagner ? all in meticulously crafted transcriptions that are setting new musical traditions in brass performance. They are especially drawn to the works of J.S. Bach.
Canadian Brass just released a new CD, Swing that Music: A Tribute to Louis Armstrong.
