Featuring works by:
Francisco de la Torre, Tielman Susato, Carlo Gesualdo, John Dowland, Suite Renaissance and Claudio Monteverdi
The brass quintet as we know it is a modern constellation, but ensembles of wind instruments, involving shawms and sackbuts, were a staple before the Renaissance had even begun.
Arrangements of music of this kind still form an important part of the repertoire of most brass ensembles, including Stockholm Chamber Brass. Having earned international recognition for their several recordings of resolutely contemporary works, the five members here return to their roots, in a varied programme.
