Notes & Reviews:

The expressive range and versatility of the wind ensemble is exemplified in this program from one of the world's leading ensembles of its kind, which presents classics of the genre alongside new works. Wayne Oquin's Tower Ascending pulsates with urban power whilst Richard Lorenz explores a web of Latin American music. Michael Tilson Thomas distils old and new perspectives and James Mobberely offers affecting Words of Love. We also hear Copland's indelible Fanfare for the Common Man, Vaughan Williams's intricate Toccata Marziale and Stravinsky's brilliantly virtuosic Concerto.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
The performances are confident and prepared. The soloists meet the challenges of the scores, and the wind ensemble boasts several very good players.
