About

'Landscapes' is a journey through the rich tapestry of American wind band music, performed by one of the country’s leading ensembles.

One of Michael Torke’s most admired works, Javelin has been described as a ‘sonic olympiad’, while his arrangement of Mojave was made especially for Ji Hye Jung and the University of Kansas Wind Ensemble. Frank Ticheli explores vibrant colours in sound in his moving An American Elegy, while the Copland arrangements encapsulate the depth and variety of his imagination.

Paul W Popiel is the Director of Bands at the University of Kansas, only the seventh person to hold this position in the band’s storied 125-year history. He conducts the Kansas University Wind Ensemble, directs the graduate program in wind conducting, and guides all aspects of the university band program.
