Notes & Reviews:

Recognized as one of the nation's premier wind ensembles, the NWSWE emphasizes the performance of masterworks for band. On their first recording in seven years, the ensemble has created a beautiful, songful recording with a style and sonority that stretches the concept of what a symphonic wind ensemble "is" while being an inspiring resource to music educators everywhere.
