American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Vol. 7 has the Rutgers Wind Ensemble of 2001. As always, they sound solid, well-blended, in tune, and technically skilled. All of the pieces are good. I especially enjoy 'Fantasy on a Gaelic Hymnsong' (Morning Has Broken, made famous in the 1970s by Cat Stevens); the exuberant, ostinato-powered 'Zamar', from the six dances in the ballet Praises; 'The Pride of Buxmont', a peppy march composed for a junior-high honors band; a beautiful Adagio composed in memory of a community band director. The nine-minute Symphonic Movement is an intricate, high-energy work that a Missouri all-state band must have enjoyed playing when Holsinger composed it for them.
