Description

Introducing the newest addition to Vienna Instruments' revolutionary “Dimension” series of ensemble instrument collections. In addition to the three muted brass ensembles of four players each (all trumpets, trombones, and French horns were recorded with "straight mutes") the Vienna Instruments Dimension Brass II includes a unique ensemble of four Wagner tubas that you’ll scarcely find in any other library!

Wagner tubas were originally created for Wagner’s 16-hour epic opera cycle “Der Ring des Nibelungen“ that he composed between 1848 and 1874 (with some interruptions). Wagner was inspired by instrument maker Adolphe Sax, the inventor of the saxophone, and sought a particularly noble and somber sound like that of a trombone but with a less incisive, mellow tone, like that of a French horn. Actually, the Wagner tuba is a special type of tenor horn and the term “tuba” is therefore misleading, as the mouthpiece and the fingering are identical to the French horn. Consequently, these instruments are traditionally played by horn players in the orchestra. Besides the monumental “Ring” cycle Wagner tubas occasionally appear in orchestral works of other composers, such as Anton Bruckner (7th, 8th, and 9th Symphony), Richard Strauss (Elektra, An Alpine Symphony), Igor Stravinski (Firebird in its original version of 1910, Le Sacre du Printemps), Arnold Schönberg (Gurre-Lieder) and Edgar Varese (Arcana).

As with Vienna Dimension Brass I, the players of these ensembles were recorded in groups using dedicated microphones for each of the four players, resulting in a homogeneous sound while still allowing direct (individual) access to each voice.

Features:

  • Trumpet ensemble (4 muted trumpets)
  • Horn ensemble (4 muted French horns)
  • Trombone ensemble (4 muted tenor trombones)
  • Wagner tuba ensemble (4 players)
