Notes & Reviews:

Rave Gramophone review of this dazzling performance of American brass classics from Aaron Copland (incl. Fanfare for the Common Man), Leonard Bernstein (incl. Suite from West Side Story), Samuel Barber, Charles Ives, and Henry Cowell. The London Symphony Brass are outstanding, the rich sonority of the brass thrills the senses on these masterpiece compositions.

Gramophone
The very best in brass playing, brass-arranging, and brass-recording... The players display every possible skill in the handling of the superlative arrangements by Eric Crees. West Side Story and 'El Sal=n MTxico' come up in places shining in a burnished brass coloring more effective than the originals. There remains the Bernstein Prelude, Fugue and Riffs... Has a new masterpiece been born?

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: The Barbican, London (01/1991).
