POTSDAM -- The Potsdam Brass Quintet will present a spring concert featuring a composition by Crane professor Arthur Frackenpohl Wednesday, March 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Snell Music Theater, SUNY Potsdam.
The concert will feature the brass quintets of Viktor Ewald, Malcolm Arnold and Arthur Frackenpohl.
The Ewald quintet, written in the 1880s, is generally considered to be the first significant work ever composed for brass quintet, according to Crane staffers.
The Arnold quintet was written in 1961 for the New York Brass Quintet.
In addition to the three major works, shorter selections by John Cheetham, Samuel Scheidt and Libby Larsen will be featured.
The Potsdam Brass Quintet consists of John Ellis and James Madeja on trumpet, Kelly Drifmeyer on horn, Mark Hartman on trombone and Charles Guy on tuba.
