About

Each of these five contemporary American pieces for wind band, performed by one of the country’s leading ensembles, explores its own very personal soundscape.

Paul Dooley delves into the world of Drum & Bass with electronically inspired orchestrations, whilst for Steve Danyew the exploration of counterpoint is paramount. In composer Roy David Magnuson’s own words, Innsmouth, Massachusetts – 1927 is ‘pulpy horror music’ which depicts a night in H P Lovecraft’s terrifying 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth'. In contrast, Scott McAllister’s Gone is meditative and prayerful. Pulitzer and GRAMMY® Prize-winner Jennifer Higdon’s Percussion Concerto is heard here in its arrangement for wind ensemble.
