Program Notes

Brass playing in America has long been held in high regard throughout the musical world. It was the aim of this project to commission new works, of a distinctly American quality, that would provide a fresh voice for the high level of performance and distinctive sound of American Brass players. Interestingly, the composers come from many different regions and their music represents an eclectic mix of compositional styles.

St. Mary’s Brass, under the Artistic Direction of Jeffrey Silberschlag is in residence at St. Mary’s College of Maryland and is part of the Tidewater Ensemble which was founded 25 years ago. St. Mary’s Brass performs in various combinations of instruments and perform modern works, as on this recording, and traditional repertoire. Its members have premiered works for Brass by composers such as Luciano Berio, Hans Werner Henze, Morton Gould, and William Thomas McKinley. In addition to their appearances with the St. Mary’s Brass its members hold positions with, and have performed with the American Symphony Orchestra, United States Marine Band, Naval Academy Band - Annapolis, Kennedy Center Orchestra, the Jerusalem Symphony, National Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Israel Philharmonic, New York City Opera – National Company, and the Italian Radio/Television Symphony Orchestra RAI-Torino.
