Douglas Hedwig (1st Trumpet and Music Director) and Kristian Solem, Trumpets; Will Parker, Horn; Bruce Bonvissuto, Trombone. Live concert recording (1979) at St. Bartholomew's Church (NYC) by the Metropolitan Brass Quartet, shortly after their 2nd international concert tour for Columbia Artists Management. Heralded by Musical America as "A model of infectious spirit and dashing virtuosity," and by the New York Times as "always admirable," the Metropolitan Brass Quartet was recently described by Audiophile Magazine as "an important part of the renaissance of brass chamber music; they were founded in 1977 and gave their final concert at Lincoln Center in l986." The MBQ recorded three albums during the ten years of its existence, and their most popular recording has recently been re-issued on compact disc on the MSR Classics label: http://www.msrcd.com/catalog/cd/MS1228
