For its first album for ATMA Classique, Buzz Cuivres (Buzz Brass) presents Héritage, featuring an array of important works for brass by composers Victor Ewald, Axel Jørgensen, and Oskar Böhme, who have left a rich legacy of chamber music for brass. All the works on the program were composed specifically for brass instruments at the beginning of the 20th century and showcase their beauty and virtuosity.

Around 1820, the invention of valves finally enabled brass instruments to play all the notes in the chromatic scale, as woodwinds and strings had long been able to do. This technical progress spurred musicians to perfect their art and created a climate in which performers could flourish, leading to what might be called a “golden age” of brass writing. This is what this recording is all about.

The Canadian quintet Buzz Cuivres has been travelling the world and captivating classical music lovers since 2002. Whether alone or with guest musicians, Buzz Brass’s highly original performances consistently make a strong impression. The ensemble has given over 1 800 concerts and won over more than 450 000 music lovers across North America, Europe, and China. Over the years, Buzz Cuivres has earned numerous awards and honours—including Canada’s Opus, ADISQ, and Trille Or prizes—in recognition of the quality and renown of its performances.

With its innovative programs, acclaimed recordings, unique repertoire, and broad appeal, the group has become one of Canada’s most reputable brass quintets. With this album, the quintet now has eight to its credit and continues working on new repertoire for future recordings.
