    American Brass Quintet

    A groundbreaking ensemble that has been at the vanguard of brass chamber music since its founding in 1960, the American Brass Quintet has forged a powerful legacy that cannot be overstated. 

    Since its beginnings, the American Brass Quintet has dedicated itself to only performing works originally written for brass, a daunting task considering the short list of historical works for brass already in existence. This has led to the commissioning of numerous works from contemporary composers that are now considered to be among the most significant contributions to the brass quintet repertoire. ABQ has premiered works by Jan Bach, William Bolcom, Elliott Carter, Jacob Druckman, Eric Ewazen, William Schuman, Ralph Shapey, Gunther Schuller, Virgil Thomson, and Melinda Wagner among many others.
