Marco Pierobon of the Gomalan Brass Quintet tells us they have a new CD out on Summit. Pierobon comments, "the album – entitled Gomalan Brass Quintet - was recorded in Trentino, a beautiful area in the north of Italy, with the musical help of Francesca Ceci (my wife) and Gilda (my dog). We are delighted that the CD is issued on Summit, the most important Brass label in the world.
"The track list starts with Italian Opera (we're Italian ... it was impossible without those pieces...), goes through Italian and American soundtracks, to international light-swing-jazzy music. That's simply a sample of the Gomalan Brass style and concert repertoire!
"All the arrangements are mine (except Verdi's Forza del destino, arranged by J. P. Bouchard), and never published."
