About this album

This is our fifth CD, played by five musicians, with music by five American composers (including a five-movement work entitled Take Five). This circle of Fives brings us back to our roots: five brass players exploration and love of new music. We founded the MAE to expand our musical horizons – to stretch our understanding of musical language. We have moved in many directions while never losing sight of our initial focus. This CD is the realization of our ongoing effort to seek out pre-existing works, and to generate new works through commissioning. We present here an exciting variety of sounds and rhythms. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Our thanks to the composers, and to you, the listeners. New music is alive and well.
