UCO's Wind Symphony and Friends release

album featuring the music of Michael Colgrass

 

The University of Central Oklahoma Wind Symphony & Friends under the direction of conductor, Brian Lamb, has released their second CD on the Equilibrium label featuring the music of Pulitzer Prize composer, Michael Colgrass, including his intriguing and most interesting setting of J. S. Bach's "Goldberg Variations". After listening to the recording, Mr. Colgrass wrote to Dr. Lamb:

"I am so proud of this recording I can't find the words. In the first place the recorded sound is of excellent quality. Interpretively, this studio version of the piece has a quality that the live performance didn't have: playful and light in the movements that called for it. In general the playing is sensational—If I were there I'd take the whole ensemble out to dinner right now."

Also on the CD:  Zululand, Ghost River and Gotta Make Noise by Michael Colgrass.
