Whoever might associate Elbeblech (Elbe River brass) with a tanker accident in Hamburg Harbour has another thing coming. The music of the five brass players of the ensemble of the same name does indeed rustle from the loudspeakers with a considerable number of gross register tonnes, and a stiff breeze can be sensed in the crisp fortissimo passages, but the nautical analogies end here… Unless, of course, one wished to compare the elegance with which the baroque jewels (Bach, Telemann) whirr past us with a streamlined sailing yacht. Or unless one felt as if relocated in a canoe by the Brazilian coast when hearing “The Girl from Ipanema.” Whoever expects old battleships such as “The Queen of Sheba” or the “Trumpet Voluntary,” however, is on the wrong steamer: the Elbeblech Boys travel on white water. A lively, fresh repertoire awaits the brass fan on this CD, mostly in the group’s own arrangements and flawlessly clothed in brass. Have fun and ships ahoy!

"The Goethe dictum about string quartets may be applied without qualification here to the genre of the brass quintet; that’s how communicative and eloquent this hour of music is.
This is due, not least, to the outstanding sonic adaptation and optimum spatial illumination of the sound. Listen to it? Absolutely!" (Klassik.com, online)
