Meridian Arts Ensemble

Timbrando is released in the year of the Meridian Arts Ensemble’s 20th anniversary. The group began as a traditional brass quintet winning four competitions within four years including First Prize in the 1990 Concert Artists Guild New York Competition that launched their career. Eclecticism is a key element of MAE’s performances: mixing classical and contemporary works, jazz and rock compositions, ethnic music and original works by Ensemble members. They are well known for their interpretations of rock composer Frank Zappa’s work (who personally coached them on how to play his music) as well as commissioning, collaborating or premiering works by Milton Babbitt, The Common Sense Composers’ Collective, Stephen Barber, Ira Taxin, Kirk Nurock, John Halle, among several others
