Rob Barnett
MusicWeb International, February 2013

The playing [of the HR Brass] has weighty impact yet is light on its toes.

There’s a nice abrasive edge to the playing of Prokofiev’s famous march from the mad-zany For the Love of Three Oranges. Weill’s Kanonensong from The Threepenny Opera is suitably vainglorious and heartless. Chabrier’s Joyeuse Marche is as familiar as the Prokofiev and is heard here in a tasty little arrangement. Dupré’s Poème Héroïque is a substantial and regal piece…Beethoven’s Marschlied from Egmont receives well thought through attention to varied dynamics. It’s followed by the skirling and janissary tones of the march from The Ruins of Athens. The Wagner Trauermarsch… is well enough handled. It’s all vividly recorded…

…this reissue…should set your feet tapping and your mind racing. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
