This recording features repertoire highlights from one hundred years worth (1825-1925) of Swiss brass dance band music. Brass instruments were popular with musicians in dance bands up until the first half of the 20th century. After 1820 and the invention of the valve for brass instruments, ensembles featuring clarinets and brass became commonplace. Stylistically, countryside folk music lagged aristocratic court music, where the best musicians worked, by about fifty years.
