Tune in to Radio 3 tomorrow to hear Onyx Brass perform from their new CDs “Canite Tuba” and “Time to Time”.
“Time to Time”, which The Guardian called “an eclectic ear-opener of a disc, virtuosically played”, was released by Meridian records and features music by Ives, Copland and Barber as well as new music by Stuart MacRae, Joe Duddell and Tim Jackson. The luscious baritone voice of Mark Stone, currently appearing as the title role in Don Giovanni at Deutsche Oper, Berlin features in a number of beautiful new arrangements for voice and brass quintet.
