COSMOS was commissioned by SPECTRUM BRASS in 2020. Written by Seattle based composer, ANTHONY DiLORENZO, this magnificent new piece for brass quintet was premiered July 25th, 2020 at the Bay View Music Festival. We hope you enjoy this brief excerpt from the complete work.

Notes from the composer: Strap in and prepare to be thrust into the stars at the moment where it all began. Flourishes of vivacious passages hurtle us outward from an explosive start depicting the creation of the universe as it expands immensely, forming space, time, matter, and energy.

The ominous passages that start the journey transition into a transcendental dance, as galaxies mold and splashes of hydrogen and helium merge to help form the rich psychedelic clouds and nebulas, filling the once dark void.

The work continues to propel the listener outward at breaking speed as life emerges and takes its place within the mass of luminescent energy known as the COSMOS.
