In the third CD of Mardi Brass’ epic four-CD journey from the Renaissance to the present day (Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue), the group presents a cornucopia of exciting original compositions, and imaginative arrangements by members of the group, each of which is a premiere recording.
Covering a wide range of musical styles, the unifying feature is that the composers
have borrowed thematic material - and inspiration - from one source and reinterpreted it using their own unique voices. Transcending mere arrangement or pastiche, the composers demonstrate the art of musical disguise and metamorphosis, seamlessly moulding and fusing material from one genre to another.
