Canadian Brass have earned the distinction of being ‘the world’s most famous brass group,’ a legacy that began when they become the first chamber group to perform on the main stage of Carnegie Hall in 1979, and continues to this day. “The Great Wall of China” is the new album from one of classical music’s most popular ensembles, a recording that breaks into new territory both musically and culturally. In 1977, as China emerged from the Cultural Revolution, Canadian Brass arrived in Beijing for a concert tour that was part of a cultural exchange. They were the first Western musicians to visit the country since Western music & art were banned in May 1966. The experience was the inspiration for this album that features the world famous ensemble performing arrangements of some of China’s most popular songs. In addition to maintaining a heavy international touring schedule for over 40 years, the Canadian Brass have sold well over 2 million albums worldwide — with 1.2 million sold in the Nielsen Soundscan era alone
— and continue to score Billboard chart positions: Stars & Stripes: Canadian Brass Salute America spent 8 weeks in the Top 25 on the Billboard Classical Chart during the summer of 2010, peaking at #2. In 2010, half a BILLION people tuned in to Canadian Brass appearance on Hunan TV that featured two songs—Mo Li Hua and Song of the
Guerillas—that appear on ‘The Great Wall of China’.
