Based in Boston, Massachusetts, Triton Brass is an exciting musical collaborative comprising five of the region’s most promising young talents. Prize winners at the 2005 Lyon International Chamber Music Competition and 2003 Fischoff International Chamber Music Competition, Triton is in its fourth year as artists-in-residence at The Boston Conservatory, where the group serves as both performers and instructors, and are proud to be faculty and co-hosts for the Atlantic Brass Quintet International Seminar. Triton Brass also served as chamber music faculty at the Boston University Tanglewood Institute from 2005-2010.
Among its recent performances, Triton has performed as soloists with the Boston Conservatory Wind Ensemble, the new music ensemble Alea III, and the Concord Band, and as a headline performer for an WGBH outdoor concert in front of more that 30,000 audience members. Fervent supporters of new music, the quintet has performed multiple world premieres in recitals throughout the U.S. and maintains an ongoing “call-for-scores” open to all composers and collaborators.
2014 International Atlantic Brass Quintet Seminar
The Northeastern Center for the Arts welcomes the International Atlantic Brass Quintet Seminar to our campus this summer. Since 1993, the Atlantic Brass Quintet has been dedicated to training future generations of brass musicians from around the world. In 2004, Triton Brass joined the faculty of this two-week-long program designed to educate, inform, and develop brass players’ advanced musicality, performance technique, and collaborative skills.
The daily schedule consists of rigorous rehearsals, coachings, master-classes, and plug-ins. Students attending the seminar will have the unique opportunity to work with music industry students and members of Green Line Records in the Snell Library Audio Studios. This year’s featured guest artist is Sam Pilafian, tuba faculty at University of Miami and founding member of the Empire Brass Quintet. Mr. Pilafian will lead a masterclass and will work with each of the student quintets as well as the Atlantic Brass Quintet in an open rehearsal at the Fenway Center.
Five public recitals will be held in the Fenway Center, 77 St. Stephen St and will feature performances of new music by the Atlantic Brass Quintet, Triton Brass Quintet and the student quintets. Additionally, arrangements for large brass ensemble created especially for this seminar will be featured on a large brass ensemble concert followed by a jazz jam session. Members of the greater Northeastern community are invited to attend these free concerts and meet with the performers afterwards.
