Throughout my compositional life (since 1991), I have always been inspired to compose music for the musicians and artists that I know and admire. While attending the 2013 ITG Conference in Columbus, Ohio, I attended a presentation by Jack Sutte who is a member of the Factory Seconds brass trio composed of the Cleveland Orchestra’s Second Trumpet (Jack Sutte), Second French Horn (Jesse McCormick), and Second Trombone, (Rick Stout) . Rick and I played in the Jacksonville Symphony together (Rick 1988-2000) and me Peter Voisin (1985-2005). After a great trumpet demonstration and Brass Trio performance, I spoke to Rick afterwards and asked him if he wanted me to write something for their trio. He answered, “absolutely, and we are always looking for new repertoire!” Two years later, 12 inventions for 5 Brass was born.
