Notes & Reviews:

A unique figure in contemporary American music, Don Gillis, the prolific composer, conductor, and educator had a catalog of more than 150 works including ten symphonies and six string quartets. On this release, the Madera Wind Quintet presents the debut recording of these delightful works creating discovery in one of America's forgotten musical narratives. Madera Wind Quintet: Amy Thiemann, flute; Jason Paschall, oboe; Rachel Yoder, clarinet; Jorge Cruz Jr., bassoon; and Angela Winter, horn.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
The Madera Wind Quintet has solved these differences neatly, with an attractive, homogenous sound and meticulously matched articulation and phrasing. The individual players show technical strength and stylistic versatility and play solo roles with aplomb. This enjoyable disc is recommended for wind quintet fans looking for something light, accessible, and little known.
