High Quality Brass Quintet
Musical versatility … collective sense of humour … a most appealing programme put together by young men who clearly enjoy their work
Jersey Evening Post
… the compelling music of Mardi Brass… an ensemble who like to entertain.
Gabrieli’s Christmas Motet was superbly delivered by Mardi Brass
…the dynamism of Mardi Brass…
Crispian Steele-Perkins joined the brass ensemble for the opening items… the trumpets and trombones articulated the colourful contrasts of the music with the high skill that comes so naturally to these talented performers.
Reviews for Something Old…
the rich sonorites … are fulfilled and the playing is equally satisfying
Brass Band World
There is plenty to enjoy here in the playing of an obviously accomplished group
For over a decade Mardi Brass have been impressing with both their quality of musicianship and their versatile range of styles… expert trumpeters Richard Hammond and Edward Maxwell, French horn ace Jonathan Hassan and accomplished trombonists Adam Woolf and Jeff Miller (who also adds excellent tuba here) combine superbly thoughout.
Reviews for Something New…
the excellent Mardi Brass quintet … extrovert exploration of ensemble virtuosity
Wow! What a great CD! I couldn’t ask for a better performance of Rounds and Dances”
I very much enjoyed the disc and thought the playing was superb. And I’m very grateful for such a musicianly, as well as technically assured, account of my piece – beautifully played and, where necessary, rhythmically very acute. Thank you so much!
