TURINA / BERNSTEIN / BONNEY / NIXON / KOH
Converging Cultures
Fred Hamilton (guitar) / Lone Star Wind Orchestra, Eugene Migliaro Corporon

[ Naxos Wind Band Classics / CD ]

Release Date: Monday 27 February 2012

This programme brings the old world of festive Spain in Turina's La Procession du Rocío into a meeting with Roger Nixon's Californian 'tonal fresco' Fiesta del Pacifico. Chang Su Koh's Korean Dances use exotic traditional rhythms, whereas Bernstein's Symphonic dances refer to Cuban cha-cha and the Mexican mambo.

James Bonney's Chaos Theory is a concerto for electric guitar which fuses hardrock intensity with classical sophistication. The Lone Star Wind Orchestra's American Tapestry album (8570968) was described as 'completely stunning.' MusicWeb International
