Notes & Reviews:

As the Lieurance Woodwind Quintet turns 63 years old, they have taken on the task of examining music written by composers since their inception. The borrowing and blending of compositional techniques - including popular song and jazz - is the constant thread linking these distinctly "American" works. Spanning influences from North, South, and Central America, these pieces demonstrate how fertile soil can grow infinite diversity.
