Faculty Recital: American Brass Quintet

The American Brass Quintet makes their annual Juilliard appearance, featuring a world premiere by Juilliard faculty member Philip Lasser; a New York premiere by Steven Franklin; and works from Renaissance Venice, performed with student brass players from Juilliard. The 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 and Juilliard's resident brass ensemble since 1987, the ABQ has been hailed as "the high priests of brass" (Newsweek) and "positively breathtaking" (The New York Times).
