Wind Band Music - REED, A. / BERNSTEIN, L. / BACH, J.S. / SMITH, C.T. / CHIANG, Chia-Ying (Armenian Dances) (Taiwan Wind Ensemble, Boyd)

Comprising professors and band directors, the Taiwan Wind Ensemble is a leading international exponent of the wind repertory, not least in its exciting series of commissions. On this disc it presents a selection of music of orchestrations and originals from around the world. There are a variety of overtures and evocative dances from Bach to Bernstein, as well as Alfred Reed’s richly colorful Armenian Dances. They are complemented by Taiwanese composer Chia-Ying Chiang’s mysterious and beautiful recent composition A Chasing After The Wind, which takes its title from Ecclesiastes.
