Golden Gate Brass presents the dazzling sounds of brass in a program of works that are iconic, and made the group fall in love with the brass quintet genre.
After working with Australian Composer Alex Turley in 2018 to bring a new piece into the world that pushes the boundaries with flowing ethereal melodies, experience Cloudscapes, the pleasing combination of new ideas with lyrical brass playing.
Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings is known to many, being one of the most poignant string orchestra pieces written in the modern era. Originally written with the intention to include it as the second movement of his string quartet; here it is perfectly adapted for brass quintet.
Experience the playfulness of Warlock's Capriol Suite and the fiery Hollywood style of Anthony DiLorenzo's Firedance, while Michael Tilson Thomas' Streetsong is every bit as grand and striking as San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge.
These enthralling works bring the excitement of brass centre stage and make full use of the unique dazzing sound of brass.
