Centuries of Brass

May 27 @ 7:00 pm UTC+0

Centuries of Brass!

The MusicaNova Brass Quintet takes the audience on a journey through time and across geography. From a 15th century Flemish composer, through Italy, Germany and Russia (where the brass quintet is said to have originated), to American composers who popularized the blues, raised ragtime to an artform and melded jazz and classical motifs, you’ll hear six centuries of music in one evening.

Gwyneth Walker (1947)                     Fanfare Among Friends
Giovanni Gabrieli (1554-1612)          Canzona Per Sonare La Spiritata
John Cheetham (1939-)                      Scherzo
Anon (1684)                                        Bankelsangerlieder

Victory Ewald (1860-1935)                Quintet No. 1

Suite of Trios (selections)                 Anton Reicha (1770-1836) –  arranged by John Ericson
