From the Concerto for two trombones by young Canadian composer Matthew Ricketts to the swingin’ tunes of Glenn Miller and Tommy Dorsey, brass instruments take centre stage under the baton of Maestro Kent Nagano. Treat yourself to this exquisite musical cocktail, a mix of jazz and classical spiced with the gripping modulations and humorous touches of Prokofiev's Symphony no. 1.
