CINCO Brass Quintet (Guillaume Fortin and Dorival Puccini, trumpets; Anna Mayne, horn; Brian Risinger, trombone; and Jared Bulmer, tuba) joined Rush Hour this Tuesday to perform a diverse selection of repertoire in Brass Outings: Music of Giovanni Gabrieli, André Previn, and George Gershwin.
Jared Bulmer paused the performance after the Gabrieli Canzone per Sonare No. 1 “La Spiritata”, a piece arranged for brass quintet, to discuss the availability of repertoire for his ensemble. The following selection on the program, André Previn’s Four Outings for Brass, was the only piece on the program originally intended for the instruments present in performance. Anna Mayne spoke briefly before Selections From Porgy and Bess (George Gershwin, arr. Jack Gale) to discuss the popularity of the works’ melodies before ending the group’s stunning performance.
