“The quintet’s clear sound and precise articulation let the music speak with big-time personality.”

– The Aspen Times


Formed in 1954, the American Brass Quintet is regarded as the first brass quintet in the United States. Hailed as "positively breathtaking", by The New York Times, and "of all the brass quintets, this country's most distinguished" by the American Record Guide, the American Brass Quintet has clearly defined itself among the elite chamber music ensembles of our time.


In residence at The Juilliard School since 1987 and Aspen Music Festival since 1970, it is internationally recognized as one of the premier chamber music ensembles of our time, celebrated for peerless leadership and committed to the promotion of brass chamber music through education. Through its acclaimed performances, signature programming, large discography, and educational endeavors, the ABQ has created a formidable legacy in the brass field.

The American Brass Quintet is represented by Kirshbaum Associates, New York.
