Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
James Barnes (b 1949) has taught music theory and composition at the University of Kansas since 1977. Almost all of his tuneful, quite consonant, skillfully crafted works were written for high school and college bands; and several have become part of the standard repertory. Barnes's best-known work is the four minute 'Yorkshire Ballad' (1983), a lovely piece now available in a variety of arrangements. Also from 1983 is the seven-minute Appalachian Overture. And there is Wizard of Oz Overture, a medley that stems from a 1981 marching band show. All are what we would call typical band pieces - solidly tonal, modest in technical demand, and calling for lots of enthusiasm. Fine readings by the Wind Symphony of the University of Texas at El Paso.
