About

After the success of Brass (RCO07002), the first CD from the Brass of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, musicians and audience felt the need for a proper successor.

Now, seven years later, RCO Live presents 'Brass Too'. The pun in the title also points to the idea behind this album: the works of Shostakovich and Piazzolla, for instance, were not originally written for brass, and although Hindemith is not known as a composer of brass music, he has written for this family of instruments, too. In his Konzertmusik, the brass section is joined by the RCO strings under Kurt Masur.

The new work by the RCO's house composer Detlev Glanert proves that brass can sound completely different, too.

This album is full of surprises!
