Notes & Reviews:

With Richard Wagner's bicentenary coming up on May 22, there are all kinds of sounds in the air and words to be read about the great Romantic music dramatist. But where among all this are we to find the truly original messages? Some of them are to be encountered right here, because when German Brass tackles Wagner, expectations are always high. The brass ensemble is justly regarded as one of the world's finest, consisting of the best musicians from Germany's leading orchestras (including Bayreuth's!), so this is a special event: music made, played, and recorded with total commitment.
