Canadian Brass proudly welcomes Bernhard Scully to Opening Day Entertainment Group with his 2nd chamber album, Windows In Time. This CD features the premiere recording of Gunther Schuller’s final composition for horn, Quintet for Horn and Strings, paired with the work Gunther said was his great inspiration, Mozart’s Quintet for Horn and Strings, K. 407.
Recorded at the Krannert Center for Performing Arts, Foellenger Great Hall at the University of Illinois (UIUC), the project was funded by the University of Illinois Center for Advanced Study, the UIUC College of Fine and Applied Arts, and the UIUC MillerComm Lecture Series.
Composer, Gunther Schuller, himself a horn player and long-time advocate of brass chamber music, invited by Bernhard to produce, has presented remarkable aspects beyond the excellence of musicianship by all the performers; foremost being the last of Gunther’s creative works before his passing in 2015.
No one was more qualified, experienced and musically insightful to showcase the magnificent blend of the oldest and newest two Quintets; and together with Bernhard and the Jupiter Quartet, this masterful CD represents the historical pinnacle of the horn.
Bernhard continues to achieve an enviable position in the horn world as performer, educator, mentor and administrator, high in demand by many of North America’s most important musical ventures — Canadian Brass applaud Bernhard's epic journey into Horn chamber music!
