David Sampson (2009)

Chants and Flourishes for double brass quintet was written to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the formation of the American Brass Quintet. The work is a continuation of my ongoing collaborations with the ABQ that began with Morning Music, written in 1986. I have been, and continue to be, a strong supporter of the work of the ABQ in guaranteeing the survival of the brass quintet as a serious chamber music entity through commissioning, performance and recording of new brass chamber music. It has been my honor to be a co-conspirator in their quest.
