Episode 261: An Intimate Brass Holiday
Five or six performers is all it takes to make some of the most enjoyable holiday music for both worlds... the sacred world of worship and celebration and the secular world of presents and jolly old Santa Claus... just five or six players is all it takes.
For years I have been collecting CDs and even vinyl recordings of some great brass quintets and I want to share 9 ensembles with you... Each will get two selections, just to keep it fair. These groups come from all over the northern hemisphere.
