Baroque Music for Brass and Organ

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Manheim
There are many brass quintet recordings, to be sure, and many of those focus on Baroque music and include an organ. But the Empire Brass Quintet and organist William Kuhlman should be able to shrug off any market glut with this splendidly executed collection of Baroque favorites. Though these performances don't stand out sharply from other similar discs, they're smooth and expressive and can hold their own with the productions of better-known ensembles. The arrangements are all done by trumpeter and group leader Rolf Smedvig, lending a consistency to the album that will endear it to casual listeners in search of some ideal classical party music.

Audiophiles, too, have reason to seek out the disc, either in its regular version or in a special SACD release not reviewed that will no doubt shake your house down to the foundations. The brass-and-organ genre has always been a favorite of the thousand-dollar-speaker crowd, and this release additionally gives Telarc's crack engineering team ample opportunity to show off its chops. The liner notes don't indicate how the recording came to be made at Decorah, Iowa's Luther College, but whoever selected that resonant location is due some special praise. A thoroughly enjoyable release for newcomers to classical music, brass enthusiasts, and audiophiles alike.

    Superior CD of Haydn Concertos

    This excellent CD presents the well known trumpet concerto along with the lesser known concertos for oboe and harpsicord. All three deserve to be played and heard more often. The recording is an excellent performance and rendering, offering listeners an opportunity to appreciate these three pieces.

    I Flipped for This Album

    As an old brass and organ fan from way back, I can say truthfully that this one blew me away. The selections are tremendous, the playing is superb, the production values are out of this world, the acoustics and the overall quality is not to be believed. I highly recommend this album for audiophiles, organ fans and lovers of first rate brass playing. Be sure your stereo system is in perfect operating order before you try this at home.
