As some of you may know, I am in a graduate brass trio at the University of Iowa, and I have been enjoying every moment of it! Chamber music playing is some of the most rewarding experiences one can do, and has really pushed me to become a more accurate player and a more active listener. We have been playing some challenging repertoire, and I'd say most of it lands on the "newer" music side of things.
While I was looking into more brass trio music, I stumbled upon this trio called Cantus, from Croatia, on Youtube. The group played a composition titled simply "Brass Trio" by Boris Papandopulo. The piece has elements of Ewazen, Stravinsky, and Sampson intertwined. Unfortunately, there is virtually no information to be found of the Cantus brass trio which just makes me even more curious to learn about them!
