The Prince Regent’s Band join us following the launch of their new disc ‘Russian Revolutionaries’ with a performance of repertoire from composers associated with Tsar Alexander III, himself an amateur brass player. The Band perform on a collection of early 20th century instruments including French cornets and Russian/German-style alto and tenor horns, creating a vastly different sound world to that of a modern brass quintet.

Böhme: Prelude and Fugues No. 1, Op. 28
Glazunov: Brass Quintet, Op. 38, ‘In Modo Religioso’
Ewald: Brass Quintet No. 2, Op. 6

Presented by University Music and Concerts as part of the Barber Lunchtime Concert series.
