Soundscapes

This concert set features music that demonstrates the wide compositional aesthetic available for the modern wind band.  Transcriptions offer the lush harmonies of Bach to the angular dissonance of Danielpour, while the original compositions of Goto, Boysen, Turrin, and Ticheli seek to maximize the unique sounds that only a wind band can produce.
