This album is a re-issue of the acclaimed ensemble Canadian Brass who have recorded works from the Renaissance and Baroque as well as a number of works by Mozart. Vivaldi's "four seasons" has been commissioned for the ensemble; they are the first brass group to tackle Vivaldi's most well-known work. Arranged by the sophisticated brass industry mogul Arthur Frackenpohl, these arrangements utilize the original taste of American Canadian Brass who play each work with staggering effect.
