The works selected for this recording were originally conceived for a different instrumentation. Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky and Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 were both written for solo piano, while Bizet’s Carmen Suites were taken from the opera. As this recording will demonstrate, the brass quintet is more than capable of doing justice to such challenging works. Widely acclaimed as one of the world’s finest brass ensembles, the Atlantic Brass Quintet has been heard in 48 of the United States and more than a dozen countries across four continents, performing a unique repertory spanning the Renaissance to the present.
