Notes & Reviews:

The Sinfonietta and Wind Ensemble from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro offer a program of compositions by American composers.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Equilibrium 119 offers selections by wind ensembles of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The Sinfonietta plays most of this program. Much of Matthew Tommasini's 9-minute Torn Canvases, which attempts to depict in sound the paintings of Jackson Pollack, reminds me of the bright, assertive minimalism of Michael Torke. Joel Puckett says his 15-minute Southern Comforts (2008) is about fond memories of growing up in the South, and he gave three of the movements South-evoking titles.
