Under the direction of Harlan Parker, the Peabody Conservatory Wind Ensemble has given over forty world premières and has performed at state, regional and national conventions. Considered “one of the finest ensembles of its kind in the nation”, the Peabody Conservatory Wind Ensemble has received critical acclaim from contemporary composers such as David Amram, James Syler, Eric Ewazen, Stella Sung and Johan de Meij. The début CD of the ensemble, From an Antique Land, has been praised as one of the most exciting wind ensemble recordings in recent times and the second CD, Orff, Bird and Reed, was released in August 2006 on the Naxos label (8.570242). Of the performance of La Fiesta Mexicana on the second CD, composer H. Owen Reed, in a letter to Harlan Parker writes, “I have just listened, twice, to your brilliant recording of my La Fiesta Mexicana, and I must tell you that it was a thrill to hear my music performed exactly as I always hoped for. Your total understanding of the work showed up on all parameters. Your tempos were on the mark, and the overall conception of the work was superb.”
