Description: Another example from Hungaroton of foreigners writing music for brass ensembles in Russia. Simon's Quatuor is pure chamber music with a bit of coarse Russian folk music in the finale but the morceaux were likely intended for outdoor performance, their stream of alternately lyrical and dance-like numbers written for groups of four, five, six and seven instruments. Ewald Brass Ensemble, György Hornyák (horn - morceaux 9-22).
