Product details

This CD by the Melbourne Brass Esemble features an interesting and varied program by five Australian composers. The playing is dynamic and accurate; the sound is full and the acoustic of the recording is very true to life.

Recorded at the Melbourne Concert Hall (now Hamer Hall), the music includes Percy Grainger's wonderful "Tone-stuffs for brass five-some", Paul Sarcich's appealing set of five aboriginal songs, a fanfare from Robert Sims, and works by David Stanhope and Barry McKimm.

The ensemble has a reputation for its ability to adapt to a wide range of music with a high degree of quality and experience. Unlike the usual quintet which includes a tuba, the Melbourne Brass Ensemble includes Eric Klay's bass trombone which provides a rich full sound. Geoffrey Payne, one of the group's two trumpeters won first prize in the 1984 Budapest International Music Competition.

Duration: 40 min.
