Description

This work was discovered at the end of a collection of vocal pieces published in 1684 under the main title “Die Bankelsangerlieder.” or “The Song of the Bench Singers”. The term“bankelsanger” or bench singer referred to an itinerant musician or busker who performed in the local tavern while standing on benches. The Italian translation for a “bankelsanger” is “cantastoria”, which means “story singer”, a singer who tells his story while gesturing to a series of painted or printed images. Baroque in style, some music academics believe that the work may have actually been composed by the German composer Daniel Speer (1636–1709).  This lively work is unusual in the quality of its themes and even more so in the antiphonal effects produced by the answering back and forth between various groupings of instruments.

“Under the Spell of Spain defies any category other than: superb.”

“Simply some of the most exciting and triumphant brass playing I have ever heard!”

“Just wanted to give a general shout-out to SUPERBRASS - who are truly super-bad; for my money, one of the most exciting large brass ensembles EVER.”

Rex Richardson
International Trumpet Soloist

“The entire programme can be likened to a sumptuous feast, with each track having its own highly delectable and thoroughly satisfying flavour. The CD is surely compulsive listening for all brass and percussion enthusiasts.”

C Brian Buckley
Brass Band World

“This intriguing "water-borne" voyage runs the gamut from more classically-tinged interpretations to straight-ahead and improvised jazz. Along that journey we are treated to a highly inspired and masterfully presented performance.”
