Pre-Season Brass Ensemble Concert: Opening Fanfare
Friday, Sep 14, 2018 at 7:30 PM - English
New and returning Brass Fellows take the stage to herald another fantastic year with fanfares, dances and a hint of jazz. Conductor Ian Bousfield, former Principal Trombone of the Vienna Philharmonic, leads the way with Principal Trumpet of the Montreal Symphony Paul Merkelo (NWS 1991-92), who shines in J.S. Bach’s bright, virtuosic Concerto. Malcolm Arnold’s Fanfare is a fitting start to the season, while Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Set To is a jazz-inspired tour de force. Brass Fellows then transform into feuding families and star-crossed lovers for Sergei Prokofiev’s take on a Shakespeare classic.
