80 Trombones and 30 Basses
Liner Notes   Cat. No. NWCRL422     Release Date: 2017-08-24

Berlioz is said to have exclaimed “No instrument can lift you from the depths of hell to the heights of heaven as can the trombone.” Perhaps this was after hearing the sinister unisons of pedal tones on eight trombones in his Requiem, notes previously unknown or thought impossible by trombonists. But what might Berlioz have thought of a complete orchestra of trombones, eighty strong, playing at times in eighty real parts, and spanning a better than five octave gamut, comprising soprano, alto, tenor, bass and contrabass trombones?

This is what Henry Brant has undertaken in his Orbits, and the present CRI recording was made during the first performance on February 11, 1979…

This title, originally issued on the CRI label, is now available as a burn-on-demand CD (CD-R) or download in MP3/320, FLAC or WAV formats. CD-Rs come in a protective sleeve; no print booklet or jewel case included. Liner notes are accessible via the link above.
