Album Notes
The unique music that INNOVATA performs is not only audience friendly, it is the most popular music they present! From their informative tidbits between peices, to their light-hearted banter - INNOVATA introduces audiences to music that has never been performed by other brass quintets. That's right, nowhere else can you hear the staple repertoire of INNOVATA! Wonderful transcriptions from the Baroque to Dixieland are all part of an INNOVATA concert, but the original music that they present is second to none, and most importantly, their audiences love it!

This particular album is the group's 1st effort including music from Baroque to Dixieland and has their first original tune "Karen" by Sanae Kanda. This exclusive piece set in motion the future direction of the group. In 2013 INNOVATA will be releasing a new recording made up of only original works by composer Sanae Kanda, but pick this one up - it has a wide variety of great music that audiences have enjoyed over and over again!


"Right away, the range of this ensemble was apparent - from the good humor of the opener through the long, smooth phrases of the Bach."
-Bangor (ME) Daily News

"It gave me goose bumps and I even had watery eyes at certain points...engaging on every leavel and would urge absolutely anyone to go..."
-Hardwick (VT) Gazette

"Outstanding! Great group to work with!"
-Doug Dicey, director of Parks and Recreation, Exeter, NH

"Your energy and enthusiasm spread to the audience. Thoughtful repertoire selection and terrific execution made for a great concert - one of our best ever. Thanks!"
-Steve Parker, Parish of the Epiphany, Winchester, MA

"You have a class act that goes far beyond your excellent musicianship. Your rapport with the audience is second to none, clearly entertaining, teaching and delighting your audience."
-Lauren Komack, Classicla Music Committee, The Center for Arts in Natick (MA)

"The music was wonderful and the presentation, with just the right touch of humor, certainly held the audience throughout the performance! We want each concert to be of the highest caliber in regards to musicianship and program. INNOVATA certainly 'filled the bill!'"
-Thom Roach, programming, Gore Place, Waltham, MA

"Innovata takes you on a wonderful musical journey, and you'll laugh all the way!"
-Laurence Arinello, principal, Albert W. Lewis School, Everett, MA

CD Baby

A FABULOUS classical brass CD! An innovative organization that performs music spanning 600 years. Classical, Baroque, Renaissance, romantic, contemporary, jazz, Dixieland and much more. The musicianship ALONE is stunning as the horns twist and turn their ways around these pieces. Add the vast range of the styles, and the crystal clear recording, and you'll think you're actually in a concert hall!

Great CD, perfect condition, great price

Pamela Rooney

Wide-ranging styles played by a nimble collective of musicians.
Buy this fabulous classical brass CD and listen to it LOUD at least once. Then you can listen to it at whatever volume you wish. This inventive collaboration of talented musicians plays life into pieces spanning 600 years of musical history and ranging from Baroque to Dixieland in origin. The musicianship alone is stunning as the horns twist and turn their ways around these pieces, melting over melodies and rolling over rhythms. Add to that the vast range of the styles, a strong selection of material, and the crystal clear recording, and you’ve got yourself a package that’s ready for gatherings of any kind or solitary reflection on a lazy afternoon.
