Notes and Editorial Reviews

Exquisite playing by Canada’s premiere wind orchestra.

The University of Calgary Wind Ensemble is widely recognized as Canada’s leading wind orchestra. It is made up of the most advanced performers of wind and percussion instruments at the University and has earned a substantial international reputation. Under the direction of Dr. Glenn D. Price, the Ensemble has received great critical acclaim for its performances, recordings and broadcasts. Dr. Price is also a renowned percussionist and a graduate of the Eastman School of Music. This recording, featuring music by European, Asian and American composers (including one of the most recent works by the popular Michael Torke), is the ninth in their series and the first to
Read more be released on Albany. The works represent a wonderful range of colors, styles and compositional techniques.

R E V I E W:

"[This CD includes a] first-rate performance of Joseph Schwantner’s Concerto for Percussion. It has little competition from the recording by the North Texas University Wind Ensemble (Gia 657 or Klavier 11153), which is too deliberate. The stunning Slatkin/National SO/Evelyn Glennie recording of the original orchestral version on RCA 68692 is definitive, but Burritt makes this a worthy alternative. Glennie is more subtle and colorful; Burritt more dynamic and energetic. You probably want both."
