Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The music on this CD spans about 40 years of my composing career, and represents a variety of grade levels from the "Highland Fling" for younger bands to the much more difficult "Concerto For Band". And it even includes a perennial favorite of many bands, my "Third Suite". All performed with the same care and musicianship. ~Robert Jager

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
A stirring 'Testament' (1988) honors the annual Six Flags Festivals band competitions. The challenging 14-minute Concerto for Band (1980) is the big piece. Melodies in the 5-movement, 8-minute Colonial Airs & Dances (1987) are from 17th-Century American songs, but it has a modern sound. After Hebraic Rhapsody (1999) and Chorale & Toccata (1967), the program ends with Jager's chipper, popular Third Suite (1965), a 3-movement, 8-minute work that has an especially memorable III. This album was recorded in the presence of the composer.
