Waking Winds is the first professional recording by the MIT Wind Ensemble (Frederick Harris, Jr., conductor). The music ranges from jazz, minimalism, romanticism, serialsim, and fiddle music. These are premiere recordings of four concerti: Pulitzer Prize winner Gunther Schuller’s Song and Dance, and three works composed by MIT composers for the MIT Wind Ensemble; Peter Child, Brian Robison, and Evan Ziporyn.

Waking Winds is dedicated to the memory of John D. Corley Jr., who served MIT for 51 years as conductor of the MIT Concert Band.

Waking Winds is more then just another wind ensemble record: it’s a snapshot of contemporary classical music in the US today. Jazz, minimalism and concerto works live together in strange and distinct harmony. Add to that the fact that it is a record of premieres: this is the acclaimed MIT Wind Ensemble’s first recording and it’s the first recording for all the works on this album. Frederick Harris Jr. moreover drives a tight ensemble.

The composers range from stalwarts like Gunther Schuller and Peter Child to Bang on a Can’er Evan Ziporyn. Of special note is Brian Robison’s “The Congress of the Insomniacs” which could be described as Steve Reich meets Gil Evans with dashes of Ligeti, Messiaen, and Tower Of the Power thrown in for good measure.

"...An exhilerating range of approaches to the modern wind band."

Ken Smith - Gramophone
