Atlantic Brass Quintet

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Gantner Concert Hall of Haas Fine Arts Center

7:30 pm

Widely acclaimed as one of the world’s finest brass ensembles, the Boston-based Atlantic Brass Quintet performs a unique repertory spanning Dufay, Gesualdo and Bach; Babbitt, Ellington and Zappa; and ethnic music from the streets of Brazil, Cuba, the Balkans and New Orleans. The quintet’s distinctive sound, impeccable ensemble, stunning virtuosity and inviting stage presence win praise from audiences and critics alike. The ABQ performed to accolades last May at the 2011 International Trumpet Guild Conference in Minneapolis. Reviewer Gary Mortenson wrote, "What a great group, programme and venue: a concert to remember and treasure."
