American Brass Quintet

Event, Guest Artist, Music, Garden City Event, Performing Arts Series


 

ABQ2 Matt DineThe American Brass Quintet performs works from the ever-changing brass chamber music repertoire—works often commissioned or unearthed and arranged by members of the Quintet as part of their efforts to promote the brass quintet as a significant chamber music form. Founded in 1960, the ABQ has been hailed as “the high priests of brass” (Newsweek) and “positively breathtaking” (The New York Times).

This program* will include a charming composition from the late Brazilian composer Osvaldo Lacerda and works by great composers of the Renaissance:  Gioseffo Guami, Andrea Gabrieli, Bastian Chilese and Thomas Stoltzer.  Three of ABQ’s commissioned pieces round out the program. These pieces created for ABQ are Brass Quintet No. 2 “American” by Kenneth Fuchs, Missing Words II, by Eric Nathan and David Sampson’s homage to sailing with his father, Chesapeake, which will conclude the concert with beautiful sonority.

ABQ will also perform Professor Paul Moravec’s Inaugural Fanfare for President Riordan which he wrote for the inauguration of the 10th president of Adelphi University.

*Repertoire subject to change.
