The word 'Tribute' can be defined as an expression of gratitude or praise: something said or given to show respect or admiration. This CD is launched to coincide with the centenary of Gilbert Vinter (1909 - 1969), who without doubt was one of the most important composers to grace the brass band movement. In addition to his groundbreaking test-piece compositions for brass band, he also contributed three chamber music gems in the form of brass quartets which appear on this recording. Also included on this recording are original quartet compositions by five other important and well respected composers. We hope that this recording will encourage other brass band musicians to perform in a chamber music setting and rekindle interest in some fine original compositions which are rarely heard today.
Eminence Brass is a brass ensemble formed in 2008 by four leading brass musicians; Richard Marshall and Philip Cobb (Cornets), Owen Farr (Tenor Horn) and David Childs (Euphonium).
