Commander Donald Schofield has given me permission to post the full recording from the upcoming USAF Band of Mid-America CD release of my Concerto for Wind Ensemble. The CD will be out at Midwest. This piece, as you can see if you take a look at the score, is not on the easy side. It’s been awhile since I indulged my RedLine-rhythmic side much lately, until this work. While it isn’t as rhythmically extravagant as RedLine, the Concerto does have it’s share of trickiness. I’m extremely happy with this piece, and look forward to writing two more movements at some point.
NOTE about the recording – this is a stereo file, which means you miss out on the antiphonal surround effects of the 3 clarinets, 3 trumpets, and 2 horns, that are placed on the sides and behind the audience. Please use your imagination (the antiphonal staves are located at the bottom of the score, and a diagram for their placement is at the beginning of the score).
If you have 8’30” to spare, go listen!
