Emerging from the glow of our epic anniversary festival in June, TILT 10, TILT Brass is very psyched to rejoin our friends at Festival of New Trumpet Music (FONT Music) for another exciting event at Roulette.

In addition to the distinction of sharing a bill with Mr. Roy Campell Jr.’s Akhenaten Large Ensemble, we have the honor to present the work of legendary composer and pianist Christian Wolff. The program includes the premiere of Octet (brass players & a violinist), commissioned by FONT and dedicated to TILT. Trumpeter Gareth Flowers and special guest Josh Modney on violin will also play Duo 6 from 2005.

From Roulette event page:

FONT Music presents Music for Small, Medium and Massive: Premieres, Fanfares and Remembrance, a marked exposition of sound for trumpet including commissions and tributes to friends old and new, premieres and fanfares, and music for 52 trumpets across two nights…

This year we open the festivities… with a mixed Christian Wolff brass program with TILT Brass and a premiere of a new piece commissioned by FONT from the Roy Campbell Jr. Akhenaten Large Ensemble.
