Comprising the University’ s most accomplished musicians, The University of Georgia Wind Ensemble commissions and premières new compositions and performs other significant works from the wind band repertoire. From Holst’s Hammersmith, depicting the good natured Saturday night crowds in west London during the 1930s, and Millennium Canons, composed by Kevin Puts to welcome the 2000s with a fanfare, to Lost Gulch Lookout, a piece reflective of the craggy, colorful landscape of Kristin Kuster’s hometown of Boulder, Colorado, a spirit of celebration and lyricism infuses the entire disc.


Review By Rad Bennett,,September 2009

Awayday is perhaps the best known work on the CD, and it gets just the sort of high energy, demonic reading it needs to be highly successful. As indicated above, the playing is splendid and absolutely first rate, in both the ensemble and the solo passages, and the recording, produced by Bradley Genevero and Andrew Trachsel, is clean and sonorous with great presence, whether the musical passage is tinkly or tumultuous. Another benefit of this recording is the the low Naxos price!
