Pittsburgh Symphony Brass, The Spirit of Christmas
This splendid new release features wonderful Christmas favorites arranged in magnificent settings that capture the joy and good cheer of the holidays, played as only Pittsburgh Symphony Brass can. Like their successful first holiday recording, "A Christmas Concert" (also available through BDC), the new album offers popular carols in short festive arrangements for brass, but also adds to the program songs arranged for brass, organ, tympani, and voice. Led by Grammy award winner George Vosburgh and produced by the renowned Arnie Roth, Pittsburgh Symphony Brass performs with the bold, virtuoso flair for which they have become so popular. Sure to be a favorite is a very special new Christmas song, "Take Me Back to Christmas Past", written by Marvin Hamlisch and sung by the talented young mezzo-soprano Tami Fire.
