From the nature sounds of the opening to the edgy “heavy metal” of the conclusion: this GENUIN release by the Lake Brass Ensemble is a production full of good humor and meaty sounds! The young musicians under Norbert Stertz perform this richly orchestrated brass music with an impressive low brass group, with two tenor horns and a tuba providing a velvety, fleshy lining to the brilliance of their dazzling colleagues. In addition to two world premiere recordings – Kerry Turner’s Lake Constance Fantasy and Alexander Reuber’s Cerberus – the tracklist features known and unknown, but above all magically shimmering works: film music by Hans Zimmer and John Williams, symphonic selections by Gustav Mahler, and chamber music by Dmitri Shostakovich.
A stunning new release of John Williams’ classic film scores, newly recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Gavin Greenaway, featuring a previously unheard edition for solo cello of ‘Schindler’s List’ – a world premiere.
