The Symphonic Brass of London

This is a very cool compilation video of a dectet of players from London performing in a cathedral in Norway. The pieces are start with an arrangement of a piece by François Couperin, a French Baroque composer. This is quickly followed by Debussy's Girl With the Flaxen Hair. Next up, De Falla's Ritual Fire Dance, and Ravel's Alborada del Gracioso. Then perhaps some of the most famous opera excerpts from Bizet's Carmen. Then come some very fun and lively arrangements of works by Spanish composer Enrique Granados. La Boda de Luis Alonzo by Giménez is the last work.

The quality of the video is rather lacking, but the the level of playing is superb enough to compensate for that.

The website for the group.
