Notes & Reviews:

The Moores School (University of Houston) Percussion Ensemble was established in 1997 and is directed by Blake Wilkins. The Ensemble's selection as a Winner in the 2003 Percussive Arts Society Percussion Ensemble Competition and is appearance at the International Convention established its reputation as a leader in percussion performance. The Ensemble was again selected as a Winner for 2006. Under Wilkin's leadership, the Ensemble has emerged as a leader in the promotion and performance of new music. In 2002 a commissioning series was begun to encourage new works for the medium. Since the inception of this project, the Ensemble has commissioned six composers, some of whose works are heard on this recording - the second made by the Ensemble for Albany Records.

"The University of Houston Percussion Ensemble is a prizewinning group heard to excellent effect in this compilation. Taut, rhythmically precise, and dynamically responsive, they play everything with commendable concentration and commitment. Director Blake Wilkins sculpts the music with poised sensitivity and a fine attention to instrumental color - try Pierre Jalbert's Wood/Metal Music - or with irresistible energy... All told, this is a scintillating survey of contemporary works, sure to appeal to a broad range of music-lovers as well as to percussion aficionados." - Robert Schulslaper, Fanfare
