Andrew Kazdin, producer of The Antiphonal Music of Gabrieli, wrote the following in 1968: “The same probability that governs the chance that ninety toothpicks poured out upon the floor will arrange themselves into the twenty-six letters of the alphabet applies to the project of bringing together nineteen busy musicians from the top three orchestras of three states.”

Fast-forward forty-six years and this project is reborn with the National Brass Ensemble — a group comprised of twenty-six outstanding brass musicians from nine of the finest orchestras in the United States. The inspiration for this recording project is the original Grammy® Award-winning 1968 recording, The Antiphonal Music of Gabrieli, featuring brass groups from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra and Philadelphia Orchestra. In this modern version, these musicians perform antiphonal music by Gabrieli in refreshed arrangements by Tim Higgins (Principal Trombone, San Francisco Symphony), as well as a new work for brass by celebrated film composer John Williams.
