Description:

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.

DISC ONE Contents: Divertimento for Brass and Percussion (1958) - Les Couleurs Fauves (1995) - Cheetah (2006) - Al Fresco (1975) - Music for Prague 1968 (1968)

DISC TWO Contents: Smetana Fanfare (1984) - Apotheosis Of This Earth (1970) - Concertino for Piano (1949) - Concerto for Wind Ensemble (1982)



Aside from the top level performances on this North Texas set, praise must also be given to the recording teams. The exemplary sound is entirely natural, resonant, and detailed. You will be hard pressed to find a better series of wind recordings than GIA Composer's Collection.
