Description

Music for Brass is our latest CD release which presents a selection of key brass compositions and arrangements by the renowned musician Peter Maxwell Davies.  The carefully selected compilation of music brings together a variety of works for brass quintets, solos and duets to enjoy.

This collection was recorded by The Wallace Collection in 2000, but was never released at that time.  It therefore gives us immense pleasure to now breath life in to this significant CD, concurrent with the re-ignition of our new recording ambitions.

The CD also includes the first ever recordings of Maxwell Davies’ compositions Fanfare for Lowry and Brass Quintet, as well as his arrangement of Tallis’ Four Voluntaries.

The recording’s comprehensive tracklist represents a vital addition to the collections of brass enthusiasts and Maxwell Davies devotees. whilst offering a wonderful opportunity to share in the creativity of the group which has brought together such a compelling collection of pieces.
