Album Notes
"I am an incurable fan of the Meridian Arts Ensemble. They have a passion for creative innovation and a commitment to presenting music that elicits attentive ears and open minds. A Meridian concert assumes that, deep down, a listener wants to experience beauty, coherence, humor, contrast, uncertainty, and even challenge presented in the context of virtuosity, precision, and ardent emotional persuasiveness. The relationship between performer and listener is taken very seriously. Just as the Meridians search for significance, depth, sincerity, and “stretch” in repertoire, they hope for a listening audience that seeks relief from escapist fluff and entertainment. Undivided, active participation is required, and will reward the listener with a broadened palette of emotional, intellectual, and possibly visceral artistic references. To have one’s brass chamber music presented by this remarkable ensemble is a privilege beyond comprehension."

Great Music!
This CD is amazingly refreshing. The clarity of the groups sound is fantastic. The music, written by Dr Britton Theurer, is suprisingly unique in a time when uniqueness is a sought after quality. Anyone who enjoys origional music and great contemporary brass playing will love this CD.
