The brass quintet with this instrumentation has only been around since the 1950's. That being the case brass players have always longed for composers to write music specifically for our medium. With a new found understanding of how the brass family of instruments work, composers have begun writing profound music for brass quintet. Brass Sect was formed by members of two other brass quintets (that currently exist on their own) for the purpose of performing music written (not arranged or transcribed) for brass quintet. The pairing of members from these two very different quintets created a melting pot of unbelieveable musical proportion! Brass Sect was born!
Brass Sect has performed music by Kerry Turner, Eric Ewazen, Enrique Crespo, Lauren Bernofsky, and John Cheetham. Look for these and other great composers of brass quintet music at future concerts!
