performed by The American Brass Quintet:

Raymond Mase, Chris Gekker, trumpets

The Albany Symphony Orchestra has had a long association with both Francis Thorne and Robert Starer. The Orchestra commissioned Thorne's Symphony No. 7and performed the Hudson Valley Suite by Robert Starer in the early eighties shortly after it was premiered by the Hudson Valley Philharmonic. To complete this disc, there are works for brass quintet by each composer. This recording will appeal to those who enjoy contemporary American music.

"This well-matched quartet of works by two composers active and-or resident in upstate New York offers two complementary compositions from each: a short piece for brass quintet and a larger Orchestral work inspired by the Hudson Valley region. I don't think there are any undiscovered masterpieces here. If lacking something in brilliance and vigor, performances are alert and sound quality acceptable." (Fanfare)
