Wind Band Music - DOOLEY, P. / DANYEW, S. / MAGNUSON, R.D. / MCALLISTER, S. / HIGDON, J. (Point Blank) (Illinois State University Wind Symphony)

Each of these five contemporary American pieces for wind band, performed by one of the country’s leading ensembles, explores its own very personal soundscape. Paul Dooley delves into the world of Drum & Bass with electronically inspired orchestrations, whilst for Steve Danyew the exploration of counterpoint is paramount. In composer Roy David Magnuson’s own words, Innsmouth, Massachusetts—1927 is ‘pulpy horror music’ which depicts a night in H.P. Lovecraft’s terrifying The Shadow Over Innsmouth. In contrast, Scott McAllister’s Gone is meditative and prayerful. Pulitzer and GRAMMY® prizewinner Jennifer Higdon’s Percussion Concerto is heard here in its arrangement for wind ensemble.
