Crosswinds Trio presents a unique sound in chamber music. Gary
Ross (trumpet), Lawrence Kursar (horn) and Michael Toth (piano) draw on their
diverse musical backgrounds and experiences from the orchestral stage, the jazz
club, and the recital hall to create a refreshing sound. Their expressive and
inspiring playing, coupled with diverse programming infused with humor, has led
to rave reviews and standing ovations.
The establishment of the high brass trio (trumpet, horn, and piano) as a new chamber music ensemble has been the mission of Crosswinds Trio. They have written over three hundred arrangements during the past eleven years. They have performed these arrangements all over North America and Europe and have inspired composers to write for this new and unique ensemble.
