Barber's Adagio / Munch, Galway, Boston SO Strings

So this CD is perfect...it combines the best settings of this wonderful piece together on one CD...quality is flawless and its a major contribution to my classical repetoire...
English Renaissance Music
They don't come much better.
The incomparable Canadian Brass make this album a rare treat. From the first notes of Holborne's "Galliard" to the magnificent complexity of Byrd's "Fitzwilliam Suite", their renditions are sheer delight. The music is both relaxing and enjoyably stimulating. Repeated hearings allow the listener to discover some hidden turn or embellishment that was not noticed before, or to appreciate again ...
Pachelbel's Greatest Hit: Canon in D
I love this CD. And Tomita is so awesome, here is a list...
First, I do want to say that I really like this CD. It is so thorough. You probably wouldn't want to listen to the whole thing very often, but it is a fantastic reference CD. Any time you need a Pachelbel Canon for any reason. Here you go, pretty much every conceivable style on one disk. One of the Canons on here is performed by Isao Tomita... In Tomita's music I have found serene beauty, ...

Bach for Babies: Fun and Games for Budding Brains
Johann Sebastian Bach
Bach and Roll!
You can't beat Bach. If classical music is the thing you want for your baby, get this CD. If you are single and have no kids, but classical music is your thing, get this CD. This is fantastic reading music, study music (regardless of what you're studying), and just plain relaxing music. I also highly recommend the CD, BUILD YOUR BABY'S BRAIN 1.
Stars & Stripes: Canadian Brass Salute America
Opening Day Ent, 2010
Amazing Brass Record!
I am a brass player who owns many brass records. I have been a fan of the Canadian Brass for many years. They have made (and contiue to make) many enjoyable records and I have to say this is their finest to date. The playing is first rate. The arrangements are remarkable. The recording quality is crisp, clean and clear. I recommend this to anyone who wants a real toe-tapping experience. I ...

The Canadian Brass Plays the Pachelbel Canon - Great Baroque Music
, Canadian Brass
Delightful brihgtness. Real poliphony and counterpoint.
Realistic sound. You can bet that is an giant pipe organ playing the toccata and fugue. The most beautiful melodies among the cantatas. Great force on the watermusic. Deep sound on Frescobaldi. Well executed baroque music.
The Bells of St. Genevieve and Other Baroque Delights
Johann Sebastian Bach
If you like Baroque music you'll love this one. It has been one of my favorites for years. And if you love Marin Marais this is to me the best, the first selection always takes me away to a beautiful place.
For the Historians...
This is definitely in the category of "rare compilations." There are 3 "standard" renditions of Bolero, plus 7 alternate arrangements, many from nearly seventy years ago. Among the alternates are a percussion version, two versions for piano, a 4/4 Foxtrot version(!), a Tomita synthesizer version, and a short orchestral one. Be prepared to hear several recordings copied from 78 rpm records. ...
Masters of the Trumpet
Deutsche Grammophon, 2005
A Must Have For All Trumpet Players
I purchased this recording as a reference recording for my trumpet studio. As I started to listen to it, I realized that it contains some of the absolute greatest classical trumpet recordings there are. Rafael Mendez is mind-blowing, Bud Herseth's rendition of the Haydn Concerto is stunningly flawless and Abblasen is a great way to open this 2-CD set. It contains a sample of almost all the ...

Go For Baroque! - The Canadian Brass
Johann Sebastian Bach
You can't go wrong with the Canadian Brass
You really can't go wrong with any CD by the Canadian Brass; they're such an outstanding group. Because of this, it can oftentimes be difficult to choose which of their CDs to purchase. However, if you are looking for a Canadian Brass CD focused around the more classical aspect of music, "Go For Boroque!" is an excellent choice. Compared to the other CB baroque CD, I feel this one is the ...
A musical gift to all of us!
I first heard Caroline play Vivaldi's seasons with Apollo's Fire in Cleveland. I could not see well being squished behind a column: when I enthusiastically approached the soloist to congratulate her, I was shocked to see a SMALL GIRL and not a 30+ violin master! Vivaldi is tricky and deceivingly simple, his Seasons can be nauseating after having heard so many performances and recordings: she ...
Ultimate Classical Christmas Album of All Time
Ultimate Classical Christmas Record of All Time
Over and over we played "Die Menge der Engel" - - it is stunningly beautiful! The loftiness of the voices, wonderful. We loved the boys/children's choruses on many of the other pieces on the album. Duets by Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavorati - - magnifico! It is a pleasant compilation of traditional favorites and awesome classical pieces that are worth listening to again and again.
Blue and Gray: Songs of The Civil War
United States Air Force Band United States Army Field Band
Altissimo Records, 2002
Spectacular Civil War Music
The Civil War claimed more american lives then any other conflict of our history. Brother against brother, the conflict nearly tore the Nation apart. This vital part of our history must be preserved and remembered lest we risk repeating those mistakes. This album by the US Service bands brings back the music of the civil war and thus really brings the subject alive. You can almost hear the ...
A Canadian Brass fan
I cannot give anything the Canadian Brass produces less than a 5. They play beautifully. This C.D. enters into a different spectrum of their playing. They have played classical since the beginning, but the ragtime proves that they are an all-around, capable quintet.
