Program Notes: 

In the first of two concerts celebrating American composer Joseph Schwantner’s 70th birthday, UMWO performs the composer’s recent work for wind orchestra, Recoil.

The fourth and final work from a series of pieces Schwantner composed over 29 years, Recoil exploits the vast tone colors of an expanded percussion section and amplified piano.

The program is rounded out with bold, contemporary fanfares that borrow elements of Renaissance and Medieval music.
