Composer, musician, author, satirist—Peter Schickele is internationally recognized as one of the most versatile artists in the field of music. His works, now well in excess of 100 for symphony orchestras, choral groups, chamber ensembles, voice, movies and television, have given him “a leading role in the ever-more-prominent school of American composers who unselfconsciously blend all levels of American music.” (John Rockwell, The New York Times)
Chestnut Brass Company has earned international acclaim for brilliant performances on modern and historical brass instruments. As curators of the sounds of ancient and antique brasses, they have been at the forefront of the period-instrument revival using cornetti, sacbuts, keyed bugles and saxhorns in performances. The quintet continues to collect antique brass instruments and to research the literature and performance practice of these instruments.
