On The Town is a live recording of an electrifying concert given at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in June 2005 by the Royal Opera House Brass Soloists. The performance opens with Bach’s stately Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, giving us an immediate feel for the depth and resonance of sound of the Ensemble. The Birth of Conchobar, an original piece by Eric Crees, the Ensemble’s director for this concert, follows. This dramatic and exciting piece gives many of the solo players an opportunity to shine. Liszt’s Prelude and Fugue on B.A.C.H. forms the centerpiece of the concert, which is rounded off with bags of razzmatazz with Bernstein’s Suite from On The Town. This stunning performance brought the house down on the day and Brass Classics is delighted to bring it to the wider public. On The Town is the first of a series of live recordings to be issued by Brass Classics over the next two years featuring flare and virtuosity of the Royal Opera House Brass Soloists.
