Notes & Reviews:

The Lucerne Festival Orchestra brass players perform a broad spectrum of brass music. The ensemble's repertoire includes early polyphonic and Venetian antiphonal masterpieces, Classical and Romantic works, and pieces from the 20th and 21st centuries by composers such as Sofia Gubaidulina, Wolfgang Rihm, Galina Ustwolskaja, and Einojuhani Rautavaara. The group also performs arrangements of well-known piano or orchestral works, often transcribed especially for them. The forces of the ensemble vary according to the demands of the pieces, ranging from solos and duets to a full wind ensemble. The group is also regularly augmented by other members of the festival orchestra, particularly the percussionists. The concerts of the Brass Ensemble of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra are a popular and indispensable element of the festival's summer programs.

Sunday Times, 20th October 2013
Howarth's brilliant arrangement of Mussorgsky's Pictures is much less famous than Ravel's, but in a sense it's more faithful to the piano original, being scored not for full orchestra, but for a single instrumental sonority...It receives luxury treatment from the brass ensemble of Claudio Abbado's elite Lucerne Festival Orchestra.
