On Jan. 25, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s Baroque Conversations series will feature The Modern Brass Quintet in an all-brass baroque program led by principal trumpet David Washburn at 7:30 p.m. at Zipper Hall in downtown Los Angeles.
The program will include Monteverdi’s “Toccata from L’Orfeo,” Vivaldi’s “Concerto for Two Trumpets,” the second movement from Boyce’s “Suite for Brass Quintet” arranged by Howard Cable, and Giovanni Gabrieli’s Canzon II from “Canzoni et Sonate.” Also featured are Bach’s Violin Concerto in A minor arranged for brass quintet by Graham Dixon, and Contrapunctus 1, 7 and 8 from “The Art of the Fugue” arranged by Ralph Sauer.
Formed in 1992, The Modern Brass Quintet is one of Los Angeles’ foremost proponents of brass chamber music, and has been featured on the soundtrack for the acclaimed drama “American Crime Story.” Members of The Modern Brass Quintet are trumpets Marissa Benedict and Daniel Rosenboom; Dylan Hart, horn; Steven Suminski, trombone; and Doug Tornquist, tuba.
Washburn is associate principal trumpet of the LA Opera Orchestra and has served as principal trumpet and soloist with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. Active in recording studios as well, he has played principal trumpet on such soundtracks as “War for the Planet of the Apes,” “Godzilla,” “The Amazing Spiderman” and “A Beautiful Mind.”
