This re-release on Capriccio contains music picked by HR-brass. As with most brass band ensembles, they stand in the old tradition of music with ‘trumpets and drums’. HR-brass has taken a stand with their own CD on the subject of marches. This disc includes a varied programme from 10 Marches to miss the victory by Mauricio Kagel and demilitarised zone by HK Gruber to Beethoven’s Marschlied from “Egmont” and Wagner’s Funeral March from “Götterdämmerung”.

Reviews:

"This brass-band sequence is at once a relishing of the sonorous medium and a sly critique. HR Brass is the brass section of the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, fine players alert to sophisticated repertory." - The Sunday Times
