Three world-class virtuoso soloists have come together to revolutionize the brass trio, and are being hailed as the first brass group ever to play with the sensitivity and musicality of a string quartet. Trumpeter Joe Burgstaller, french hornist David Jolley and trombonist Haim Avitsur have forged together classical, light classical and classical/jazz masterworks of all eras and adapted them in unique and innovative instrumentation. Of the New York Brass Arts Trio, Classical Sonoma wrote: “Every now and again a performance comes along that takes you by surprise with its brilliance… and makes you realize you’ve just witnessed something special.”

The members of the trio each bring great experience to the table. Burgstaller is a former featured trumpeter and arranger with the legendary Canadian Brass, has performed with many notable orchestras, and has recording credentials that include solo CDs, three Top-10 Billboard hits, and a Top-50 JazzRadio hit. Jolley is the pre-eminent horn soloist of his generation, performing as a soloist with major orchestras, collaborating with major string quartets (Guarnieri, Orion and American), and is a founding member of the Grammy-winning Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Avitsur is the only trombonist named a 2005 and 2007 Emerging Artist by Symphony Magazine and has premiered over eighty compositions.
