Distinct from traditional brass quintets, High Bridge Brass uses instruments usually associated with brass bands – cornets, alto horn, euphonium, tuba. When heard in original instrumentation with world-class performers, the brilliance of these pieces comes to light – lush harmonies, vibrant rhythms, expressive melodies.

The homogeneous timbre created across five octaves enables High Bridge Brass to create a seamless sound that richly bridges the instruments together. It is with this sound in mind that Ewald and Bohme set out to compose the pieces featured here.
