The five virtuosi of The Canadian Brass have made the brass quintet an exciting vehicle for serious concert music on an international scale and have over fifty recordings in their discography. The Canadian Brass not only present works in the classical repertoire but also continue to take daring leaps into jazz, contemporary concert music and popular songs. Hal Leonard publishes most of this music, including their famous Goldberg Variations. The arrangements popularized by The Canadian Brass are the inspiration and musical staple of hundreds of thousands of music students, and hundreds of brass ensembles around the world.
"The enthralling sound of a brass choir ... programs that feature virtuosic musicianship, masterful interpretations and flashes of humour ... repertoire that encompasses Bach to blues - all these ingredients make the Canadian Brass the world's leading brass ensemble. These are the men who put brass music on the map: with their unbeatable blend of virtuosity, spontaneity and humour, they brighten the rosters of concert halls, international festivals and orchestra series throughout the world. Their numerous recordings, frequent television appearances and tireless efforts in the realm of music education have resulted in vast new audiences for the Art of the Canadian Brass.
