The GIA Composer's Collection brings together into one place the masterworks by some of the most respected wind symphony composers of all time. Stunningly performed by the North Texas Wind Symphony under the direction of Eugene Migliaro Corporon, this series also includes extensive liner notes about each composer and his contribution to the wind band.

"The idea of creating a series of recordings that pulls together numerous compositions of a single composer and presents them in one place has been a 20-year dream of mine. It seems that collecting a lifetime of work provides an invaluable perspective on the composer's contribution to our art. This project brings together outstanding selections by those composers who have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to and an indefatigable faith in the wind symphony medium. A collection of this nature would not have been possible without the commitment and dedication of hundreds of musicians over the years. The performers' time, energy, and attention have been selflessly and generously given, not for pay, but for posterity. Their caring musicianship continues to be an inspiration to me. It is my hope that the Composer's Collection will further affirm the fact that the wind symphony, in its many forms throughout hundreds of years of music history, has been and continues to be a significant original source of serious artistic expression."
