The Ni Ensemble, an award winning brass quintet based in Luxembourg, is presently on tour in Scotland. They will be performing three of my compositions. The quintet is playing “Kaitsenko”, a brooding tone-poem about the infamous American-Indian (Kiowa) fighting brotherhood. The trio will be playing “Bandera”, a somewhat lighter piece of my youth- cowboys and adventure! And Kristina is presenting a piece for solo horn called “Phantom Shanties”. This piece is one of the book of 9 solos and was commissioned by the Rotterdam Maritime Museum as a gift to it’s retiring curator.
So if you want to hear this marvelous quintet, and be doused with a heavy dose of “turnerism”, find out where in your neighborhood they are playing. The will be in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Helensburgh. For more information, check out their website:
