Canadian Brass, The: On Stage at Wolf Trap*

  • 1988 ----- color ----- 57 min ----- vhs
  • A live concert at Wolf Trap featuring the world’s favorite brass quintet, The Canadian Brass. The fast-paced, highly entertaining program features a colorful, eclectic array of music, including Bach, Gershwin, Gabrieli, Rossini, Dixieland classics, and many more. A special highlight is Peter (P. D. Q. Bach) Schickele’s uproarious cowboy "opera" for brass, Hornsmoke. Guest star Judith Blegen of the Metropolitan Opera joins the "Marx Brothers of Brass" for an irreverent serving of grand opera.
