What happens when a great wind composer is given a task that forces them to consider anew the possibilities? The result is the music presented here, a four-century survey of great wind music moments! You will hear: the only large wind ensemble works by Prokofieff and Mendelssohn, Sousa’s only march that was inspired by a feat of engineering, one of Bach’s rare 5 voice fantasies, Gabrieli’s masterful contrasting of two brass choirs, evocation of celestial ideas from Holst and Erb, Grainger’s effort to make a sustained note interesting, Steven Grimo’s commission for a US Air Force percussion ensemble, and Hollenbeck’s beautiful setting of Sufi master Hazrat Inayat Khan’s poetry about music, featuring Michigan Technological University Music Professor Dr. Jared Anderson. An evening sure to spark your own imagination!
