Notes & Reviews:

This disc features the University of Texas Wind Ensemble under the direction Jerry Junkin. Longhorn Music is proud to offer a new definitive recording of contemporary masterworks for the ascendant genre of classical wind band. This disc features an attractive collection of recently composed master works for wind band by five celebrated contemporary composers.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
This outstanding recording ends with David Maslanka's two-movement, 16-minute Give Us This Day (2005). As always, Maslanka is thinking big. In I he asks for long, drawn-out passages of very quiet, sustained beauty - something this ensemble does very well. II drives hard right away, using a brief melodic fragment in all sorts of ways, demanding virtuosity sometimes, and ending with a grim recitation of the chorale melody 'Vater Unser in Himmelreich'. A good share of the praise for this collection must go to the engineers. Balance and clarity of sound are excellent.
