Fugue: Bach / Shostakovich

Artist: Onyx Brass

SKU: 24961

Catalogue Number: CHAN10462

Quick Overview

The highly acclaimed brass quintet Onyx Brass made its debut on Chandos with premier recordings of brass ensemble arrangements of fugues by Bach and Shostakovich. ‘Easily the classiest brass ensemble in Britain’, wrote BBC Music magazine. Individually, the members hold permanent principal positions in major orchestras and have come together as Onyx Brass to fill a gap in the market for performances of serious yet approachable music for brass quintet. Why Bach and Shostakovich? Well, although 200 years of history stand between the two they have much in common. Indeed, Shostakovich is reputed to have memorised Bach’s Well-tempered Clavier by the age of fifteen, and composed his own set of twenty-four preludes and fugues round the time of the Bach bicentenary in 1950. Both sets have been transcribed for many different instruments over the years but they are particularly suited to the homogenous sound of a brass ensemble.
