ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Conductor Composer Stephen P Brown recently received the Award of Merit for Composition from the Global Music Awards (GMA) for his 2012 piece "Wind Quintet 1"

Brown’s chamber music piece “Wind Quintet 1” is traditional in style and structure, reflected by its unassuming title, but occasional twists, turns, and folk-like harmonies belie Brown’s finger on the pulse of our confused arts life in contemporary USA. The haunting second movement is subtitled “in memory of SW” and includes a dance-like section reminiscent of a peasant funeral march that could have been included in Jerry Bock’s “Fiddler on the Roof” before Tevye’s dream.

The last movement begins with several attempts to settle into old-fashioned familiarity which Brown says “reflects how the classical music industry is desperately trying to hold onto the way it operated in the last century,” and ends with an exciting push towards progress and an emphatic cry of frustration.

According to the Los Angeles based GMA, the piece exhibits outstanding craft and creativity, and “stands above other music.”

Jane Rondin, French horn player and founding member of Zephyr Winds, was thrilled to present the World Premiere of Brown’s new work in November 2012. “At our first reading we fell in love with the folky nature of the piece. The tone colors and rhythms are fun and really interesting. I was delighted that Stephen chose Zephyrs to premier his latest composition, and I know the audience will fall in love with it,” said Rondin.
