Reviews & Ratings
The Philadelphia Brass was formed in 1988 by professional musicians of Eastern Pennsylvania to pursue their common goals: performing the best of brass quintet literature of all periods and styles, and educating the public to the pleasures, subtleties, and complexities of chamber music. Since its inception, Philadelphia Brass has performed over 500 times. It has collaborated in performances with bands, choruses, organists and dancers. It has performed educational programs for kindergartners, college students, and adults of all ages, coached grade school instrumentalists and taught a master class for the brass students of Juilliard.
Critics and public alike have enthusiastically praised the appealing diversity of repertoire, technical virtuosity, humorous and informative educational programs, and superb musicality of the ensemble. The ensemble’s playing has been praised as “artistry of the highest calibre” and “dazzling technique” by presenters. Its master classes have been called “excellent and sensitively handled” and the esteemed American composer Daniel Pinkham has written that Philadelphia Brass is “the most artistic brass quintet before the public today.”
