"Kevin McKee has the unique ability to compose idiomatic, yet challenging works for brass that are as exciting and satisfying to the listener as they are to the performer.  Dürrenhorn Passage is an excellent work for trumpet ensemble and I feel privileged to have been part of it's premiere at the 2009 International Trumpet Guild Conference."
