Notes & Reviews:

This disc celebrates both the quality and variety of the internationally popular American wind band repertoire. Gershwin's 'Catfish Row' includes several hits as well as music cut from 'Porgy and Bess', while Grainger's 'Country Gardens' and 'Blithe Bells' are heard in delightful arrangements. Gordon Jacob's 'Suite' showcases the lighthearted, solemn and powerful potential of the symphonic wind band. Intricate counterpoint contrasts with brass chorales in Stamp's 'In this hid clearing'...Copland's 'Lincoln Portrait', an American classic, can also be heard in its orchestral guise on NXS 8559373.
