Notes and Editorial Reviews

The University of Calgary Wind Ensemble, led by Dr. Glenn D. Price, once again pushes back the boundary of wind and percussion music. All the music on Danceries is by 20th century composers, but the repertoire runs a wide gamut. From the amiable antiquities updated in Kenneth Hesketh's Danceries to the visceral Cancion de gesta by Cuban composer Leo Brouwer, the rhythms and vitality of the music on this disc continue the rich legacy the U of C Wind Ensemble as already established. 'Glenn Price has produced yet another musically-balanced and technically excellent album.' - Ron Chalmers, Legacy magazine The University of Calgary Wind Ensemble, led by Dr. Glenn D.
