Notes & Reviews:

What if four celebrated 19th c. composers - Mendelssohn, Schumann, Bruckner and Brahms - had written original works for brass septet? This disc explores that fascinating counterfactual twist, re-imagining choral and organ works by those composers. The arrangements call on the full dynamic and tonal range of the instruments - often extended with a multitude of mutes - to imitate the expressivity of the choir, the power of the organ, and the versatile sonorities of its different registrations and manuals. In dazzling and varied combinations the arrangers and performers together persuade us that this could indeed be original brass chamber music.

The Observer, 28th September 2014
This enterprising ensemble consists of principal players from our leading orchestras (LSO, Philharmonia, RPO, BBC SO, CBSO, Scottish Opera and Aurora) - all ace musicians, as this stirring, thoughtful debut CD for Naxos confirms. Look out for the next in the series.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
This is an excellent brass septet with three trumpets (Matthew Williams, Simon Cox, Christian Barraclough), three trombones (Matthew Gee, Matthew Knight, Daniel West), and tuba (Peter Smith). The sounds are full and beautiful from beginning to end.
