Notes & Reviews:

Pulitzer Prize winning composer Michael Colgrass' 'Urban Requiem' headlines this recording. This nearly half hour work explores the technical and expressive qualities of the saxophone quartet, as well as providing an aural experience that vividly describes life in the Big Apple. Scott Lindroth's exciting 'Spin Cycle' explores a variety of timbral and rhythmic aesthetics and is reflective of many of the technically exhilarating works currently being written for wind band. Lee Brooks' transcription of Saint-Saens' popular 'Introduction and Rondo - Capriccioso' gives this exciting work a new and fresh perspective.
