Bach for Brass

German Brass

The German Brass Ensemble presents some of Bach’s most popular tunes in breathtakingly brilliant and virtuoso arrangements for brass instruments.
Recorded live in “Bach’s church” – the wonderful St Thomas’s Church in Leipzig - the programme includes immortal pieces such as Toccata & Fugue in D minor, Adagio on a G string, “Jesus bleibet meine Freude” (Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring) and more.
German Brass counts among the most successful brass ensembles of our time and draws musicians from the best German orchestras, such as the Berliner Philharmoniker and the Munich Philharmonic.
Filmed with a full view of the church for which Bach conceived most of his works and making use of the amazing acoustics, the state-of-the-art recording is a visual and aural feast and a most fitting celebration of Bach’s music.
