Australian Brass Quintet

February 27, 2010 § Leave a comment

The Australian Brass Quintet (ABQ) kicks off this year’s Soft Soft Loud chamber series this Thursday 4th of March with a definite bang not a whimper!

ABQ features 5 of Australia’s most brilliant professional orchestral brass players from around the nation.

“The program includes Morning Music (1986) by David Sampson (USA), a meditation on the life and death of his brother murdered by the Ku Klux Klan and Monteverdi’s joyful baroque Four Madrigals.

ABQ will perform new Australian works including Fanfare Ex, composed by Charles Macinnes for ABQ in 2009, and Tilman Robinsons’ Cuidado con los Dientes del Sabio.”

“It’s trying to present classical music in a very progressive context. Using the word classical doesn’t mean the music is dead and buried in any way, shape or form.”

Matthew Hoy – Artistic Director. Soft Soft Loud.
