The Berlin Philharmonic Brass Ensemble gives brilliant performances of these varied virtuoso pieces, dating from the 16th century to today, distinguished by perfect ensemble playing caught in first-class sound in an ideal ambience, with optimum reverberation so that the glorious brass sonorities ring out with utmost clarity. Gabrieli’s Canzona for three brass choirs has great spatial splendour, Scheidt’s four-trumpet Canzon-Cornetto is a triumph of intricate canon and fugal writing. The nine-movement arrangement of Purcell’s Abdelazer.
