Product Description

Product Description

This programme brings the old world of festive Spain in Turinas La Procession du Rocío into a meeting with Roger Nixons Californian tonal fresco Fiesta del Pacifico. Chang Su Kohs Korean Dances use exotic traditional rhythms, whereas Bernsteins Symphonic Dances refer to Cuban cha-cha and the Mexican mambo. James Bonneys Chaos Theory is a concerto for electric guitar which fuses hardrock intensity with classical sophistication. The Lone Star Wind Orchestras American Tapestry album (8.570968) was described as completely stunning. (MusicWeb International).

Eugene Migliaro Corporon is the Music Director and Conductor of the Lone Star Wind Orchestra. He is the conductor of the Wind Symphony and Regents Professor of Music at the University of North Texas. His performances have drawn praise from colleagues, composers and critics alike.

Format: Audio CD
There’s no doubt about it, the Americans take some beating when it comes to wind bands. By way of a benchmark, Frederick Fennell and the Eastman Wind Ensemble were blowing everyone’s socks off with the series of LP records they made for the Mercury label in the 1950s and early 1960s. These recordings are famous for their close, highly detailed, impactful sound. The CD transfers of these marvellous recordings still sound as good as new and they are musically stunning. If you don’t have them, search them out.

This is my first encounter with the Lone Star Wind Orchestra and I must say they are very impressive indeed. The opening track, Turina’s attractive La Procession du Rocio just about sums them up. The level of technical execution is stunning with tight ensemble work and impeccable intonation. All sections play wonderfully well. This technical excellence is supported tonally by a very well rounded full and glowing sound that has an impressive bottom end. Despite the absence of strings it does actually sound like a symphony orchestra in full flow. Deep bass drum thumps underpin the texture and give the sound a real kick. What a spectacular opening to the disc.

Listening to the Turina I only have one criticism to make and that is the lack of true piano and pianissimo playing. The dynamic range doesn’t drop below mf and this can rob the quieter passages of some of their magic. This is a general observation that also applies to the rest of the CD. Some listeners won’t be worried by this but for me personally it’s a bit of an issue. I don’t know whether this is down to the engineering or the conductor. Sonically the disc is natural and gimmick free with a nice sense of space and presence. The music has plenty of air around it and details emerge very well.
