Fantastic new music!
This album is a wonderful example of how powerful new music can be for the Band Genre. Mr. Fairouz’ take on 9/11 is so powerful and emotional. This will be one of those introspective albums I listen to over and over again. Additionally, the timpani playing is fantastic on the Glass Concerto. Overall this is a GREAT album!
Brilliant new symphony
Composer Mohammed Fairouz has made a bold statement on this disc. The Symphony #4 is a powerful musical expression of our humanity in the Post-9/11 world. This is an important addition to the wind band repertoire.
The Philip Glass Concerto Fantasy is a delight, and soloists Ji Hye Jung and Gwen Burgett are stunning.
Excellent and informative liner notes, and beautiful packaging from Naxos.
From beginning to end the CD contains beautiful playing of masterful music. I cannot recommend the CD enough. There is something for both fans of wind band and those new to the genre.
