About this Recording

GOULD, M.: Derivations / Saint Lawrence Suite / Symphony No. 4, "West Point" (University of Kansas Wind Ensemble, Weiss)

Morton Gould’s wide-ranging output integrated jazz, blues, gospel, country-and-western and folk elements into masterfully orchestrated and imaginatively conceived compositions that have achieved immense popularity in the USA and internationally. His Saint Lawrence Suite, commissioned for the opening of the great Saint Lawrence Power Project, is the only original work for wind band ever nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for composition. The ‘West Point’ Symphony, Gould’s only wind-band work in this genre, has long been a cornerstone of the repertoire. Jericho Rhapsody thrillingly depicts Joshua’s famous Biblical battle, won by the awesome sound of trumpets. Derivations was composed for legendary clarinetist Benny Goodman, and Fanfare for Freedom was, like Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, commissioned by Eugene Goossens as a patriotic concert-opener during World War II.
