THE NEW YORK TRUMPET ENSEMBLE
The New York Trumpet Ensemble was formed and founded in 1974 by Gerard Schwarz in order to record the
groundbreaking recording “A Festival of Trumpets” for NoneSuch records. It was the first recording of many newly
discovered works for multiple trumpets by Heinrich Bieber, Samuel Scheidt, Giovanni Gabrieli and other baroque era
composers.
During the 1980s, The New York Trumpet Ensemble produced a number of baroque trumpet recordings and
performed with The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, The Madeira Bach Festival and the Vermont Mozart
Festival. In the 1990s, Mark Gould assumed the leadership of the ensemble and changed the direction of the music. In
1991, The New York Trumpet Ensemble recorded “Trumpets In Stride” (Summit Records; iTunes) and a new era
was born. The ensemble began to perform traditional jazz arranged for the unusual combination of four trumpets,
piano and tuba. Their concerts of the music of Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington, Bix Biederbecke and Hoagy
Carmichael were very popular throughout the United States, Europe and Japan. A few years later, The New York
Trumpet Ensemble was retired when Gould’s first son was born. The demands of family and the Metropolitan Opera
were too much for the group and it was disbanded, to be re-born in 2010. The group and its members have made
multiple appearances at Scranton in both performance and educational settings.
