Liquid Jungle is a brass quintet comprised of students from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. We formed in September of 2016 to advocate the creation of new music for brass quintet. Since then, we have commissioned and premiered five brand-new pieces by emerging composers, each of which is featured on this album.
These recordings are the culmination of what has been an amazing year of collaboration, music-making, and artistry. We are incredibly grateful for all those who have helped us along the way. Bringing these pieces to life has brought us together as both players and as friends. We hope you enjoy the results.
Liquid Jungle Quintet:
Dean Yi-Tse Chen, trumpet
Isaac Mayhew, trumpet/flugelhorn
Nicoletta Pignatello, horn
Justin Coyne, trombone
Tim Platt, tuba
