The University of Kansas Wind Ensemble offers musically enriching and artistically outstanding performances of the finest wind band repertoire. Following Redline Tango (8.570074), the Ensemble here presents a diverse selection of 21st-century music which takes its name from multi-award-winning Ticheli`s exuberant Wild Nights! Mackey`s Soprano Saxophone Concerto pays tribute to his teacher Corigliano`s Clarinet Concerto, the instrumentation of its inner movements matching their titles: ‘Felt’, ‘Metal’ and ‘Wood’. Etezady`s Anahita was inspired by William Morris Hunt`s depiction of the beautiful and terrifying Zoroastrian night goddess, Dzubay`s Shadow Dance elaborates on Pérotin’s famous medieval organum Viderunt Omnes, while Bryant’s chorale-like Dusk is illuminated by the fiery hues of sunset.
