The American Brass Quintet is internationally recognized as one of the premier chamber music ensembles of our time, celebrated for peerless leadership in the brass world. As 2013 recipient of Chamber Music Americaâ€™s highest honor, the Richard J. Bogomolny National Service Award for significant and lasting contributions to the field, the Quintet's rich history includes performances in Asia, Australia, Central and South America, Europe, the Middle East, Canada and the United States; a discography of nearly 60 recordings; and the premieres of over 150 contemporary brass works.
The New York Times recently wrote that â€śamong North American brass ensembles none is more venerable than the American Brass Quintet,â€ť and American Record Guide has lauded ABQ â€śof all the brass quintets, the most distinguished.â€ť Through its acclaimed performances, diverse programming, commissioning, extensive discography and educational mission, the American Brass Quintet has created a legacy unparalleled not only in the brass community, but in the chamber music field at large.
