Description: Plenty of the Ewald around but brass fanciers will find that, except for the sextet, the Böhme works are pretty rare. This disc is titled “Russian Revolutionaries Vol. 1” and it does come out on the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution but... More interesting is that the players use period instruments and their raison d’être is “to explore the wealth of historic chamber music for brass and wind instruments from a period roughly defined as between the French Revolution of 1789 and the end of First World War in 1918”. The Prince Regent’s Band.
