Why Kenneth Fuchs? Interview on EB Marks Website.

This project is an attempt by the leaders of our community to produce a concerto that could be programmed by major orchestras. Ken’s symphonic resume is impressive. The members of the consortium also enjoy the American sounds used by Ken in his previous works. The relationship seems like a natural fit for a group of trombonists.
