Carl Fischer Music Announces Distribution of Margaret Brouwer’s Quintet
from Brouwer New Music Publishing
New York, NY — Carl Fischer Music is honored to announce the distribution Brouwer New Music Publishing’s Quintet (BR1004 • Score and Parts • $42.50) for clarinet in A, two violins, viola, and cello, by Margaret Brouwer. A work in four movements, Quintet was commissioned by Daniel Silver and the University of Colorado, in the tradition of quintets for the same ensemble by Mozart and Brahms. From the composer: “I wanted to create a substantial work that would be a rich and complex tapestry of music influenced by different cultures; that is assertive. Sometimes passionate, sometimes angry, sometimes anguished.”

Composer Margaret Brouwer’s music has earned an unusual amount of praise for its lyrical qualities, rich musical imagery and emotional power. Remarkable for its poetic sensibility, Ms. Brouwer’s music also reveals musical craftsmanship of the highest order. These attributes are found in music ranging from symphonic works for orchestra to a wide variety of chamber combinations such as string quartet, trios, duos and pieces for diverse solo instruments such flute, clarinet, horn and piano. In 2006, Brouwer received an Academy Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and she was named a Guggenheim Fellow for 2004, based on her “…unusually impressive achievement in the past and exceptional promise for future accomplishment.” To read more about Margaret Brouwer, click here.
