The American Brass Quintet is peerless among brass ensembles, sculpting new repertoire and setting the artistic standards for the modern classical brass ensemble. The Quintet evening begins with a staple of Romantic brass music—Victor Ewald’s Brass Quintet No. 2, from late 1800’s Russia. Common Heroes, Uncommon Land, a recent commission through the Juilliard School, where they have been in residence for three decades, is a work with an Americana sound by Philip Lasser requiring each player to recite poetry. Three Fantasies in Church Modes by Thomas Soltzer, a European priest and court musician, dates back to the 15th century. The night ends with Eric Ewazen’s engaging Frost Fire which evokes from the composer adjectives such as “gentle,” “mysterious,” “playful, sonorous and waltz-like” and “heroic and dynamic.” The New York Times has written that “among North American brass ensembles none is more venerable than the American Brass Quintet.” Prepare to be “blown” away!
