Notes & Reviews:

The CCM Wind Orchestra is comprised of highly advanced performers of wind and percussion instruments, and is internationally recognized as one of the finest groups of its kind. Following a philosophy of one player per part and adopting flexible instrumentation according to the composer's intentions, the ensemble performs chamber music, selected transcriptions, concerti, and original full ensemble repertoire spanning five centuries. The ensemble performs six concerts on campus per season, while also appearing regularly in local school concerts, and as guest artists for conferences, festivals, and special events. The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) is recognized both nationally and internationally as one of the leading conservatories for the performing arts and electronic media. With approximately 1400 students divided evenly between undergraduate and graduate programs, students from 48 countries receive the benefits that CCM provides as a professional training conservatory within the setting of a comprehensive public university. The school's roster of eminent faculty regularly receives distinguished honors, and its alumni go on to notable success in the performing and media arts.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Music of Mexico, Spain, Brazil, and Columbia in terrific readings by the wind orchestra of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. From the first notes of Silvestre Revueltas's 'Sensemaya' (1938), in the arrangement by Bencriscutto, you can tell this is going to be an excellent album with strong, skilled, and confident playing. In the challenging solos that are passed around the ensemble, tone qualities are pure, pitch unwavering, dynamics clearly executed. Quiet passages have the same qualities.

Student soloists are heard in several works, and all are outstanding. Carmine Miranda is the soulful cellist in Luis Serrano Alarcon's melancholy 'Tramonto' (2007). Brittany Foster is the very expressive flutist in Hudson Nogueira's 14-minute Brasileirismos 2 (2010). Melisa Bonetti is the fine soprano in Enrique Granados's four-song Tonadillas (1910).

The album ends with Vitoriano Valencia Rincon's 3-movement, 19-minute Suite 2 (2010). As in every moment of the program, the playing is utterly secure, expressive, stylish, and exciting.
