Editorial Reviews


"A celebration of music by American composers. The performances are mellifluous and alive. Here is brass playing of glowing sensitivity." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer, June 21, 1998

"An excellent recording of relatively new works... a furious and entertaining show of virtuosity." -- American Record Guide, March/April 1999

"Get in the spirit of American music. The writing here is both spunky and sophisticated; the performances are enjoyably roisterous." -- San Francisco Examiner, July 3, 1998

"Street Song is chamber brass music at its best! Don't overlook this compact disc." -- International Trumpet Guild Journal, October 1999

From the Artist

The brass quintet, comprised of two trumpets, french horn, trombone and tuba, is a relatively new invention. Prior to the end of the 20th century, original compositions for this instrumentation were few and far between. More recently, however, the brass quintet has come into its own, becoming an accepted, standard chamber music medium. In fact, the brass quintet has progressed to the point that the major composers of the day have embraced it. In this album, the Center City Brass Quintet features five works recently written by major American composers.

The ensemble, sound, style and intonation of this fine group belie the fact that they live in other cities. Their harmonics stack up marvelously in the open 5th to end the first section of the MTT piece, one of an impressively strong set of selections. Having not been familiar with this group, I confess to having low expectations- that is until I heard the first cut, a tour-de-force by the quintet's first trumpeter, a fine composer. It now tops my large collection of brass music as perhaps the finest example of the genre put on disc to date. Having just completed a brass CD, I know how difficult the process is. These guys are truly terrific. -Michael Moore, Tuba and Artistic Dir., Atlanta Symphony Brass Quintet President, Atlanta Brass Society, Inc.

4 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Scott Taylor on October 31, 1999
I agree this is a great disc but it is not perfect. All the players are exceptional performers. The repertoire is rarely recorded and very fresh. Eric Ewazen's Colchester Fantasy has become a standard in the repertoire for the idiom. This recording lacks the finesse the American Brass Quintet exudes in their reading on Summit Records. The Tilson Thomas Street Song is fabulous on this disc. The work has previously been recorded by the Empire Brass Quintet. The Previn is forgettable, and the Bernstein is rather insignificant. DiLorenzo's feature for the group, Fire Dance, is very exciting. It is deceptive in its dificulty(i.e. it isn't as hard as it sounds). The group is spectacular and the recording is great. The group does tend to get brilliant at times. That could be atested to the fact that they are all orchestral musicians. Aside from their orchestral sound, I have few complaints about the disc. I would highly suggest their previous disc simply entitiled - Brass Quintets.
