The expressive range and versatility of the wind ensemble is exemplified in this program from one of the world’s leading ensembles of its kind, which presents classics of the genre alongside new works. Wayne Oquin’s Tower Ascending pulsates with urban power whilst Richard Lorenz explores a web of Latin American music. Michael Tilson Thomas distils old and new perspectives and James Mobberely offers affecting Words of Love. We also hear Copland’s indelible Fanfare for the Common Man, Vaughan Williams’s intricate Toccata Marziale and Stravinsky’s brilliantly virtuosic Concerto.


   




Review By Wind Band Today,July 2012

The University of Georgia Bands have released their latest album on the Naxos label. The mix of new pieces with standards is a testament to the work that John Lynch has been doing. He achieves his mission to commission and program original works for band by including Wayne Oquin’s Tower Ascending. This beautiful piece in two parts is a tremendously exciting addition to the wind band repertoire, providing both a beautiful serene opening and a thrilling conclusion, and is highlighted by D. Ray McClellan’s lyrical and bold solo playing. Ricardo Lorenz’s El muro is a sonic tour through a variety of Latin American musical styles.
