Notes & Reviews:

'Northern Winds' is an inspirational album featuring a wealth of Canadian talent that highlights imaginative approaches to wind orchestration across various styles by several composers, from Louis Applebaum's 'High Spirits' for full ensemble to Henry Kucharzyk's 'Some Assembly Required' whose title wittily refers to his pointillistic/aleatoric technique. The young featured soloists have already been critically acclaimed, Canadian saxophonist Wallace Halladay as 'one of Canada's leading performers of contemporary music' and Australian-born, Halifax-based pianist Simon Docking for his 'extraordinarily vivid realizations of contemporary music.'
