Trombone/Brass Recordings on Vinyl

Post by Draagyn » Sun Oct 07, 2018 12:29 am

Hello all,

I've recently begun collecting records of various classical and jazz varieties, but what I'd love to get my hands on most is some good trombone ensemble/brass ensemble recordings of any kind. That's about the extent of my criteria...! There seems to be a lot of great recordings that never left the vinyl format—I got a great Equale Brass Quintet recording about a year ago with some very cool arrangements of Bartok's Mikrocosmos, among some other great stuff. That's what kickstarted this for me.

Here's the few albums I have:
Equale Brass quintet recording, as mentioned
Gabrielli Brass (classic, and I love the remake, too!)
LA Phil Trombone Ensemble - Morovian Trombone Choir

I've poked around the Naxos music library for ideas, as well as browsed Discogs, but without much success. Any help would be appreciated, I'd love to hear your collections, too!

Highly recommended --- hard to find --- on the Candide label [CE 31004] --- The Eastman Brass Quintet --- "German and English Music of the Late Renaissance for Brass". Absolutely stellar brass playing ! Daniel Patrylak & Philip Collins, Trpt. -- Verne Reynolds, French Horn-- Donald Knaub, Trombone [Bass Trombone] -- Cherry Beauregard, Tuba
Have fun on your quest !

If you want to hear Gabrieli and other Renaissance/baroque brass music played with a bit more sensibility and care for the style, you might want to look at the Concerto Palatino albums. Quite different from all the "classic" recordings listed above.

I appreciate some of the new authentic performances of Baroque and Renaissance music that have been produced in recent years - or at least what we believe to be authentic performances based on the writings of scholars, etc. I also have a soft spot in my heart for performances like the old Philly, Cleveland, Chicago recording and others that have tried to emulate that classic recording. Likewise, I find myself enjoying the Stokowski transcriptions of Bach for modern orchestra from time to time, or a good performance of a Baroque cello piece on the trombone. I don't think that it's wrong to enjoy a performance that is excellent, and was played in the style that was prevalent at the time the recording was made. There's room to enjoy both in different ways.

Quite a number of Philip Jones Brass Ensemble LPs on the Argo label. Well worth looking for.
