"The editor of the 'Record Review' must admit that he is favorably predisposed toward new CDs from Brandenburg Historica, for he knows of no other US productions that offer anything comparable in the area of historic recordings. The carefully selected music on this CD has been reconstructed in exemplary, even incredible fashion, without encroaching on the integrity of the original material. This merits the highest praise! … www.germanmilitarymusic.org
The June 2007 Issue of Mit Klingendem Spiel (Zeitschrift der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Militärmusik e. V.) declares...
“The productions of Brandenburg Historica are always something special. Often, they cover terrain upon which we in Germany do not dare to venture….Like those before it, this release is distinguished by solid research [and is] Illustrated in exemplary fashion…. A focused and outstanding musical compilation.”
This brand new CD presents twenty five tracks featuring the authentic military and patriotic music of the lost world of Imperial Russia, performed between 1900 and 1912 by actual bands of the Russian Imperial Army and other musicians of the period.
Produced in the tradition of our best-selling Gott, Kaiser, Vaterland and over ten years in the making, this landmark CD features transcriptions of ancient and ultra-rare recordings compiled from private collections in Russia, Europe and the USA, all of which have been painstakingly remastered and restored for maximum audio fidelity. This compilation captures the feel and spirit of the empire of the Romanov Tsars as no modern performances can, for these are the actual sounds of the world of Nicholas and Alexandra, presented as they might have heard them over a century ago.
