Brass Quintet Discography

Original Literature

please visit www.brassapedia.org - we are migrating the data from this research to a wiki style interface.

The focus of this discography is to “unearth” and highlight the hard work of professional brass quintets all over the world that have recorded original works for brass quintet. To that end, this discography comprises only known recordings that include at least one original work for brass quintet.

Represented within these pages are over 240 ensembles having recorded more than 480 projects dating back to the
Chicago Symphony Brass Ensemble in Concert (1954) - the earliest recording in the collection.

Considerable effort was made to verify information in this record. However, there are undoubtedly some errors, and missing pieces either because the information wasn’t readily available, or it simply could not (yet) be verified. Additionally, there are certainly other worthy recordings that are not included here. Since the goal is to create a comprehensive record, omissions and errors should be viewed as unintentional. It is a work in progress.


Please send corrections and submissions for inclusion by clicking here.
