Notes & Reviews:

The Musical Arts Woodwind Quintet is the resident faculty wind quintet at Ball State University. They were awarded an American Masterpieces grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in 2010. The grant supported performances, educational activities, touring and this recording. Founded in 1957, the quintet has made eight cross-country tours, which have brought them an enviable reputation and high critical acclaim. This cd of works by American composers includes the world premiere recording of David Maslanka's Quintet No. 4 and Bruce Adolphe's Night Journey.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
Fascinating works in excellent readings by the Musical Arts Woodwind Quintet of Ball State University. The members of this fine ensemble are adept at making their very different wind instruments blend beautifully - so well, indeed, that we are often unsure just which instruments we are hearing.
