Victor Ewald may not be a name that rings a bell for a lot of people, save perhaps brass players. The Russian composer was roughly contemporary to Rachmaninoff, and his harmonic language bears some vague resemblance to the pianist-composer. What Ewald is best known for today is his brass pieces that, in execution, seem to be about as close to a string quartet as can be found in the brass literature. This is his Brass Quintet, No. 1, played by members of the Chicago Symphony brass section. An interesting and lyrical listen.
