A must have for brass lovers!

This is the premiere CD from the Washington Trombone Ensemble, a group formed from the finest trombonists in the Washington D.C area. This CD contains 6 world premieres, including the titular piece, "The Road Not Taken" a 3 movement Concerto for Bass Trombone and Trombone Ensemble by James M. Stephenson that was co-commissioned by Matthew Guilford and the WTE. The music on this recording was carefully chosen to show what is possible with the trombone, from delicate romanticism in the Brahms Symphony movement to driving excitement in the modern compositions of Bolter, Cortazzo, and Deemer. One of the gems on this recording is the masterful transcription of Richard Wagner's finale to Die Valkure with Jonathan Deutsch in the role as Wotan. The WTE handles all the roles of the orchestral accompaniment so well that it is easy to forget that all of the instrumental parts are being played on trombones. This CD is a must have for trombonists!

This album is simply magical. A must have for serious trombonists and brass players. The Passacaglia might be the closest thing to a heavenly experience.
