The All-Star Brass was born out of a concept that developed after hearing the string quartet recordings of Isaac Stern, Itzhak Perlman, Pinchas Zukerman and Yo Yo Ma. Jens Lindemann decided that he wanted to form a collective of the greatest brass soloists in the world who all had independent careers but wanted to get together for the synergy of playing live chamber music. Their challenge was to co-ordinate everyone’s insane schedule, rehearse for three days and then record a live concert for posterity trying to feature only compositions and arrangements that had never been done before. The setting? The highly inspirational Banff Centre located in the majestic Canadian Rockies. This one is a MUST OWN!
