Movie Reviews

Well worth having

"I purchased this DVD on the recommendation of the principal trombone of the Dallas Symphony and have enjoyed it thoroughly. The playing is first rate (hats off to Enrique Crespo for the immaculate valve trombone work on track 3). The camera work is tastefully done with just the right amount of shots of the Thomas Kirche (including Bach's resting place). It is also highly interesting to view the large variety of instruments used throughout the performance. If you enjoy Bach and/or brass music you will not be disappointed."

"This DVD is an absolutely must-see for any musician. The German Brass have transcribed works by Bach, Albinoni, and Vivaldi to put on one of the best brass ensemble performances I've ever seen. It's the kind of performance where you only wish you could have been there. You will hear some of the finest brass players in the world - including the absolute best display of piccolo trumpet playing I've ever seen/heard by Matthias Hofs. If you aren't blown away by their virtuosity, you should be blown away by the fact that you can't even tell how fiendishly difficult the pieces they're playing are. If you think the Badinerie or the last movement of Bach's Brandenburg No. 3 is tough on flute or violin, try it on trumpets!

Please - buy this CD - it might encourage the group to tour to the USA once in a while!"
Amazing Performance

"As a brass (trumpet) player, clinician, performer, and educator is must say that is the finest brass performance I have ever heard or seen. This is a MUST for your collection. The playing is absolutely flawless from all aspects (tecnique, intonation, ensemble balance).You will not be disappointed in purchasing this DVD!!"

"Being a trumpet player in college, I get the opportunity to see lots of groups like the the German Brass, but none of them compare. These guys are freakin' amazing! Their intonation, style, and sound quality is just about as close to perfect as any group could get. It's one thing to hear something like this on a cd. It adds so much more being able to see these guys play. I watched this in a room full of music majors- mostly brass players- we were all floored. If you are a brass player you should definitely get this. Even if you don't like/listen to Bach, you will love this."
