Notes and Editorial Reviews

Established in 1972 as a resident faculty ensemble at Tennessee Technological University, the Cumberland Wind Quintet has built a solid reputation for unique programming and fine musicianship. The group has toured throughout the United States and in Europe, performing to a wide variety of audiences. Commanding a large repertoire of music from all periods, the Quintet offers the standards and classics, exciting modern works, and lighter popular music. The Quintet has also performed as guest artists at conferences for the College Music Society, Tennessee Music Educators Association and the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic. This CD demonstrates perfectly their range, with delightful arrangements of film themes and vocal and Read more keyboard music by such composers as Ravel and Mahler, and in between highly entertaining original compositions by Ewazen, Uhl, Berger and Danner.
