Three world renowned players. Three diverse instruments. Three friends. And a new concept in brass chamber music. Table For Three brings together John Ericson, Douglas Yeo, and Deanna Swoboda in a group combining horn, bass trombone, and tuba for a scintillating album of music spanning 450 years. Renaissance, baroque, classical, contemporary, and third-stream works — none of which have ever been recorded and which include several newly commissioned and newly arranged compositions — combine for an engaging, thought-provoking program.
