Notes and Editorial Reviews

Following up from their fond delving into the past ( Reflections on the Past, 99033), the excellent wind ensemble of the University of Calgary present a daring foray into the present. Gardens of Dreams is a rich cycle of emotions, moods -- and fascinating music. From a quircky set of variations on a Frank Zappa song to the world of dreams, the contemporary and accessible music here is given full expression by the large instrumental forces of wind and percussion.
