Classical with brass instruments

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Any recommendation on good classical albums with mostly brass instruments? Any famous composers who used mostly brass instruments?

brass

If you like brass, you definitely need to check
out the 4th movement of Pines of Rome - I pini della Via Appia (by respighi). Possibly one of the most fantastic fanfare conclusions I've ever heard.

You might remember the first movement from Fantasia, but this is worlds different.

Look for stuff performed by His Majestys Sackbutts and Cornetts.

Seconded. For "mostly" brass, there are transcriptions by Canadian Brass and the Equali for Trombones by LvB

I've heard wonderful things about the Canadian Brass.

"TUBA! A Six-Tuba Musical Romp" by Gerhard Meinl's Tuba Sextet is wonderful. It's not all classical (there are some traditional folk and polkas), but if you like brass it's well done.
