Format: Audio CD
The interpretation and recording quality is "collegiate" compared to the DWS's. This is so in much the same way that the Eastman Merury recordings of the 50's and 60's aren't. They set a new standard for both. That's the best way to put it without too long a dissertation. I don't mean it in a negative way but it sounds a lot like any one of the performances of about ten or fifteen other College Wind Ensembles I can think of.

The DWS recording is the must have version if you must choose. It's a standout in recording quality and interpretation.

It's for these reasons that you can find so many of Reference's CD's on The Absolute Sound's" top CD list.

Just be careful. It has ruined many high end stereo amps and speakers by guileless owners who underestimate the dynamics that lie within!

I have both and glad I have them. I just wouldn't put the Cincinatti first over all others!

This recording is perhaps one of the best wind band recordings I have ever heard. Gene Corporon and the Cincinatti Wind Symphony are spectacular. Their take on La Fiesta Mexicana is definitely the best recording I have ever heard of that piece.

Assume performances. Clean playing and great interpretations of the selections. Chester and Candide are truly exceptional. Please produce a recording of the works of Clifton Williams.
