ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Our second CD, featuring SEVEN world premiere recordings and ELEVEN works by the BCM composers. Recorded by the University of North Texas Symphonic Band, the Tarleton Winds, the UMD Symphonic Wind Ensemble, the UNLV Wind Orchestra, the TAD Wind Symphony, Tokyo Symphonic Band, the OSU Wind Ensemble, and Ensemble X.

The BCM International composers are some of the most talented, versatile, unconventional, and accomplished composers of their generation. ERIC WHITACRE is one of the bright stars in contemporary concert music. Regularly commissioned and published, Whitacre has received numerous composition awards, as well as a Grammy nomination. His 28 published works have sold well over 100,000 copies worldwide. STEVEN BRYANT's catalog includes works for wind ensemble and orchestra, electronic and electro-acoustic creations, music for chamber ensembles, and music for the Web. His music has been commissioned, performed, and recorded by many of the very best ensembles from around the world. The American Academy of Arts and Letters honored composer JONATHAN NEWMAN for his concert, dance, and theater music, which have been performed and recorded worldwide. Winner of biannual Merrill Jones Composition Award and a recipient of the American Composer Orchestra's Whitaker New Music Readings, he has been described as "an outstanding composer...with a quirky and intellectually provocative bent." Composer JAMES BONNEY has created everything from avant-garde symphonic orchestral scores to traditional jazz big-band charts; as well as all styles of pop, rock, world-beat, and contemporary electronica. He has also scored numerous short films, documentaries, commercials, videos, and television programs. BCM International began at The Juilliard School, where 3 of the composers met while studying with Pulitzer Prize and Academy Award-winning composer John Corigliano.

Love it. This CD is fantastic!
This CD is too good! My son bought it for himself but I am considering ordering my own copy because I love it!

Paul

SWEET
As always, they keep it fresh
It is innovative and just as stunning as the last CD
I can not wait for their next CD

Very industrial as hot as molten metal poured into forms
Reminded me of a industry film/promo theme/score.Sort of gnaws at you demanding your full attention.Plenty of beauty here, ENJOY.

Peter Hadley

Fabulous!!
Really great music and really well played. A wonderful album with a lot of depth. Equus is the stand out piece, followed closely by TranZendental Danse of Joi.

David Fryer

Excellent Music
Excellent Music. Our high school band will be playing several of these compositions next year.

Scott Ostrander

I love this cd, it's undefined music at its best!
This cd was originally purchased because it has pieces by Eric Whitacre on it. I absolutely love his music but now also realize the great music of his friends from BCM. The cd has so much contrast to offer for concert bands and it's awesome that there are "different" composers out in this world. I have heard "Equus" before live but this recording was more full sounding. "TranZendental Danse of Joi" was so sweet and got me in a joyful mood. All in all this is a powerful recording but Eric Whitacre better watch out, because I am a composer and will soon have something to show to the world.

Tyler

Great CD
2 words: October and Equus.

all the others are great too.

Matt Scott

Men of Industry indeed.
This CD is probably the best, most diverse example of music for wind band that I've heard (granted, the only other wind band CD was also by BCM, but that's beside the point). Everything from flowing neoclassical (As the scent of spring rain...) to upbeat, percussive jazz (TranZendental Danse of Joi) to music that sounds like it's straight out of a film (Equus). Very enjoyable.

Dave Becerra

This CD is more then what i was expecting
I am a big fan of Eric Whitacre. The college bnad that i am in has played some of his compositoins in the past years then man is awsome. I also enjoyed Steven, Jonathan and James. Never heard anything like this before in my years of playing in a wind band before....Sweet

Ken Lee
