Notes & Reviews:

The legendary brass section of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, long recognized for its power, dynamism and lyricism, takes center stage in the latest release from the Grammy-winning CSO Resound label. Cheered for their performances and recordings of Mahler, Bruckner and Strauss, the CSO Brass turns its focus to works by Gabrieli, William Walton and J.S. Bach, as well as symphonic works arranged for brass and percussion by Silvestre Revueltas (Sensemayá) and Prokofiev (Three Scenes from Romeo and Juliet). Percy Grainger's Lincolnshire Posy, beloved by generations of wind-ensemble devotees, is transcribed here in a stunning arrangement by San Francisco Symphony trombonist Timothy Higgins. Virtuoso arrangements by Joseph Kreines of three scenes from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet and Walton's Crown Imperial feature the entire brass ensemble in thrilling fashion.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR THIS CONCERT: "For classical music lovers around the world, nothing means brass like the justly vaunted virtuosi of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra... The concert began... with excerpts from Gabrieli's sublime Sacrae symphonie, realized with breathtaking precision and polish." - Chicago Classical Review
