Notes & Reviews:

'Fanfares and Overtures' aptly conveys the spirit of this wide-ranging album, which marks the debut on Naxos' popular Wind Band Classics range of the Rutgers Wind Ensemble. Hailed by one critic as "the Rolls Royce of wind ensembles", it here presents music whose haunting moods, contrasting compositional styles and sophisticated characters call forth both the "sweet, sighing sonorities" and "impressive unanimity and sheer technique" for which the Ensemble is renowned.
