Notes & Reviews:

"This fine program opens with the Wind Quintet...by Harbison...An assertive Intrada gives a melody to unison bassoon and horn in the very high register, then to various combinations of unison instruments. Prairie Winds blends so well that it is very difficult to tell who is playing...Prairie's gorgeous tone qualities are on full display in the works of...Persichetti, Samuel Barber, and Aaron Copland..." -Kilpatrick, ARG
