This edition of Take 5 features an interview with the Gaudete Brass QuintetFounded in 2004, Gaudete Brass is devoted to presenting serious brass chamber music at the highest level of excellence. They have expanded the brass quintet repertoire by commissioning works from noted composers including David Sampson, John Cheetham, Jan Bach, Rob Deemer, and Stacy Garrop, and by working with emerging young artists through programs such as the advanced composition course at Columbia College-Chicago and the composition program at Roosevelt University. The ensemble is also dedicated to historically informed performances of Renaissance music, creating and performing its own editions of these works. Their newest Cedille album "sevenfive — The John Corigliano Effectbrings a fresh perspective to music of the American composer and his protégés and includes world-premiere recordings of his groundbreaking Fanfares to Music for on- and off-stage brass choirs, his stately Antiphon for double brass quintet, and a new arrangement of the Rossini-esque Overture from his popular Gazebo Dances. "sevenfive" will be released on February 10, but is currently available for preorder on CedilleRecords.org. Read More >

For the start of a new year, we turn to the label’s roots. Many of Cedille's earliest recordings featured solo piano, so our January Spotify playlist includes one selection from each of our albums that include solo piano tracks, presented in chronological order of release (including tracks from 6 of our first 10 discs). Happy listening, and a Happy New Year! Read More >
