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 and 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.
