Product details

Paul Terracini, himself a top-notch trumpeter, has been quietly writing beautiful works for brass ensemble over the last five years. These works, which have been performed all over the world in recent years, have now been recorded by the venerable Sydney Brass with the composer conducting. Sydney Brass last appeared on Tall Poppies with brass ensemble works by David Stanhope (TP199).

It is a great pleasure to hear well-written works performed with such expertise. The chorale-like texture of some of this brass music is deeply moving. Of particular interest to Australians will be the first work written to commemorate the tragic bushfires in the Blue Mountains town of Winmalee, west of Sydney, in 2013, and which concludes with customary optimism. All of this music is a chance for brass players to do what they do best - perform with virtuosity and scintillatingly in tune. One can hardly dare ask for more!

Duration: 59 min.

Liner notes include program notes and biographical information about composer and performers.
