Newsletter New Recordings featuring G. Schirmer/AMP composers.
The very first Blu-ray CD and DVD releases from Naxos are now available!
John Corigliano: Circus Maximus
The University of Texas Wind Ensemble; Jerry Junkin, conductor
Naxos Audio Blu-ray
Review: "This new Naxos audio Blu-ray is an astounding collection of sonorities, all the more remarkable in that both of the large scale pieces contained on it, the Third Symphony, otherwise known as Circus Maximus, and Gazebo Dances, are orchestrated for wind ensemble.... Experience what a surround recording actually can deliver, especially when it's a recording of music which has been composed with a heightened awareness of space and movement. Corigliano certainly deserves a much wider audience, and my ardent wish is that this new audio Blu-ray helps to make that happen. Very highly recommended." — blu-ray.com, Jeffrey Kauffman, October 23, 2010
