Landscapes is a journey through the rich tapestry of American wind band music, performed by one of the country's leading ensembles. One of Michael Torke's most admired works, Javelin has been described as a 'sonic olympiad', while his arrangement of Mojave was made especially for Ji Hye Jung and the University of Kansas Wind Ensemble.

Frank Ticheli explores vibrant colors in sound in his moving An American Elegy, while the Copland arrangements encapsulate the depth and variety of his imagination.
