I love days like these where we all show up with are favorite brass ensemble recordings. It's like playing pokemon (or so I would imagine) where we all show up with what we think are strong recordings and make them battle to see whose recording reigns superior. Totally kidding... kind of.
Sonata for horn tuba and piano-- Kulesha
The instrumentation of this ensemble is really fun. Both the horn and tuba provide nice round conical sounds that blend well, but also cover a wide tessatura. The piano adds a lot the rhythmic grooves, for the tuba and horn to play over. The playing by Eastern Standard is excellent. The recording has a warm sound, and the harmonies and melodic lines are well executed.
Daft Punk Brass remix
Vigilanre Brass Doin' it wrong
This recording is straight baller. I have never heard Vigilante brass before but they are also pretty tight.
Electronic tuba. Yes please. I think the piece we listened to was the chicken and the egg. It was a funky piece for brass ensemble that utilizes Electronic tuba to play the "bass" line. Like Seinfield style bass lines. This piece was a lot of fun to listen too, with really excellent solos by a trumpet with plunger and trombone.
I did Jesus is coming
Brass septet Imperial -- Sibelius
Overture in F minor
This is a nice traditional piece
Piece for horn for horn ensemble
piece for eight horns. Group is from Thailand and played the piece from memory.
Farewell to the red Castle-- Kerry Turner
