Before a Jan 29 recital of works for brass quintet, Western Brass Quintet horn player Lin Foulk Baird and tubist Jacob Cameron sat down to talk about how they choose music for a concert, how their instruments have changed over the centuries, and how they like to play classics, new commissions, and great works that went under the radar, such as George Walker's Music for Brass (1975). 

Baird and Cameron also talked about the Western Brass Quintet's upcoming album of new works, Better Angels. The album title is also the title of a new work written for them by WMU composer David Colson. It will be released in March, 2020.
