Epic Brass / Horns recommendations please


Recommended Posts

I'm probably best posting a couple of tracks I love to give you an idea as I won't explain myself very well

I just love when the horns kick in at about 2:20

And then this...


Really stirring stuff that builds to a stirring finale, I like the trumpets (?) fluttering over the top of the main slabs of brass

So yeah, anything like that really, big slabs of brass and/or horns. I'm up for anything reallt, classical or contemporary, any genre.

Any ideas?

Aaron Copland 'Fanfare for the Common Man'.

Epic stuff.

Although, I'm rather biased - he's my fave 'classic' (I use the term loosely, as he only died in 1990) composer by far.

Also by him, but less a full on Brass attack, 'Appalachian Spring' (the orchestral version). Most wonderful work of music ever as far as I'm concerned. The best bits in it are done by the brass sections too. It's like everything that's good about America distilled into one 20/30 minute piece.

On another note - and as strange as it may seem - Daft Punk's Tron Legacy soundtrack has some totally brilliant brass stuff going on!
