Conductor Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Atlanta Chamber Winds led by Robert J. Ambrose, offer a sparkling concert of music for wind ensemble by composers who lived and worked in Paris. All but one (the Pierne) are world premiere recordings and offer a substantial addition to the wind ensemble discography. Perhaps most interesting is Francis Chagrin who was born in Bucharest as Alexander Paucker but moved to Paris in 1928 and changed his name. He was most famous for his film music but he also wrote chamber music, two symphonies and songs.

"This is some of the best teamwork one will here - every rhythm in place, every note and timbre beautifully shaped, every chord tuned and balanced to perfection. At the same time, the group has fun, enjoying the dialog between the instruments and immersing themselves in each composer's unique world and language. They make great cases for all the pieces, and their renditions should inspire great performances... Ambrose deserves kudos for putting together a first-rate group and supervising and excellent recording debut." -American Record Guide
