Podcast: Monumental Winds

Monumental Works for Winds is a collection of some of the greatest pieces ever written for wind band. Persichetti’s 1956 Symphony for Band, Op. 69 is not only one of his greatest works, but has become one of the most frequently performed original American works for wind band. Stravinsky’s strikingly original and rhythmically vital Symphonies of Wind Instruments is one of his most adventurous pieces in neo-classical style. Copland’s technically challenging Emblems, is the composer’s only work for band, its eleven minute span bursting with folk melodies, dissonance, waltzes and elements of jazz.
