Notes & Reviews:

The fact that a composer of Persichetti’s stature and prominence wrote so many works for wind band was not a result of a unique devotion, but simply because he was inherently attracted to the medium. The works on this recording, which constitute Persichetti’s major works for wind ensemble, represent a wide variety of lengths, forms and difficulty levels and yet certain compositional consistencies can be found throughout. The differences are in technical demands and harmonic density rather than the basic musical language. The Illinois State University Wind Symphony and their conductor Stephen K. Steele offer exceptional performances of this music.

"I am as impressed by the playing as Silverman clearly was when she first encountered Zimmermann. The playing of the Corona Quartet (both together and as individual soloists) is devilishly precise yet passionate, and they are well matched by the singers’ and wind players’ high-quality contributions, making this a typically high-quality release from Albany with bright but balanced sound. Notes are excellent and the texts are also included... All in all, a very engaging disc of new guitar music." -Fanfare
