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 new 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 two hundred and fifty arrangements during the past eleven years and have performed them all over North America and Europe and have inspired composers to write for this new and unique ensemble.
