Notes & Reviews:

The University of Kansas Wind Ensemble offers musically enriching and artistically outstanding performances of the finest wind band repertoire. Following 'Redline Tango' (NXS 8570074), the Ensemble here presents a diverse selection of 21st-century music which takes its name from multi-award-winning Ticheli's exuberant 'Wild Nights!' Mackey's 'Soprano Saxophone Concerto' pays tribute to his teacher Corigliano's 'Clarinet Concerto', the instrumentation of its inner movements matching their titles: 'Felt', 'Metal' and 'Wood'. Etezady's Anahita was inspired by William Morris Hunt's depiction of the beautiful and terrifying Zoroastrian night goddess, Dzubay's 'Shadow Dance' elaborates on Perotin's famous medieval organum 'Viderunt Omnes', while Bryant's chorale-like Dusk is illuminated by the fiery hues of sunset.
