Cedille Records to Present Free Concert with Gaudete Brass to Celebrate New CD
Gaudete Brass (pronounced gow-DAY-tay) will play two complete works from the new CD: Stacy Garrop’s Helios (2011) and Joan Tower’s Copperwave (2006), plus movements from Rob Deemer’s Brass (2011), John Cheetham’s Sonata for Brass Quintet (2008), and David Sampson’s Chicago Moves (2011).
In addition to showcasing music from the CD, Gaudete Brass will share its other passion: performing Renaissance music in a historically informed manner on modern instruments. The ensemble will play Heinrich Schütz’s Di marmo siete voi (You are of marble) from 1611.
For concert information, contact Cedille Records at (773) 989-2515; e-mail: email@example.com. Cedille’s website is www.cedillercords.org.
Founded in Chicago in 2004, Gaudete Brass includes Bill Baxtresser and Ryan Berndt, trumpets; Julia Filson, horn; Paul Von Hoff, trombone; and Scott Tegge, tuba. Von Hoff and Tegge are founding members.
Gaudete’s fans include the Juilliard School’s venerable American Brass Quintet, whom Guadete Brass considers mentors and models. The ABQ’s Raymond Mase calls Gaudete “an outstanding young group bringing fresh ideas to brass chamber music. I'm really excited to see such a fine ensemble dedicated to serious brass repertoire."
Gaudete has appeared at colleges, universities, and conservatories around the country, including The Juilliard School, Eastman School of Music, Vanderbilt University, University of Chicago, University of Notre Dame, University of Missouri, University of Georgia, Arizona State University, and California Institute of the Arts, among others.
