Editorial Reviews

Morton Gould's wide-ranging output integrated jazz, blues, gospel, country- and-western and folk elements
into masterfully orchestrated and
imaginatively conceived compositions
that have achieved immense popularity
in the USA and internationally. His
Saint Lawrence Suite, commissioned
for the opening of the great Saint
Lawrence Power Project, is the only
original work for wind band ever
nominated for a GRAMMY® Award
for composition. The 'West Point'
Symphony, Gould's only wind-band
work in this genre, has long been a
cornerstone of the repertoire. Jericho
Rhapsody thrillingly depicts Joshua's
famous Biblical battle, won by the
awesome sound of trumpets. Derivations was composed for legendary clarinetist Benny Goodman, and Fanfare for Freedom was, like Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man, commissioned by Eugene Goossens as a patriotic
concert-opener during World War II.

Gould's wind ensemble compositions from the 1940s and 1950s are featured in this popular collection. The brief brassy Fanfare for Freedom, as Copland's Fanfare for Common Man, is infused with the patriotism of World War II, while the Saint Lawrence Suite casts a noble and cheerful shadow. In honor of a new dam and its power generation, it was commissioned by the Power Authority of the State of New York and the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario, Canada. Lyrical marches highlighted by antiphonal trumpets (representing the two nations) made this work an apt and grand dedication for the project. A short tone poem on the Biblical story of Joshua and Jericho, Jericho Rhapsody includes the famous spiritual among its eight sections. Here, a wind ensemble is the only proper way to narrate key wall-demolishing trumpets. Derivations for Solo Clarinet and Band was a vehicle for Benny Goodman. The jazzman was honored with several other classical compositions, including works by Copland, Arnold, and Bartok. Gould gave Goodman contrapunctual blues, a rag, and a romp, and while a classical composition, the jazz influence is ever present, making the piece fun listening. Because brass bands and the military go together, Gould wrote his Symphony No. 4 "West Point" for band in honor of the Academy's 150th anniversary. Brass bounce off woodwinds in the subdued Epitaphs and more energetic military forms follow in Marches. This fine album by Naxos, performed superbly by the University of Kansas Wind Ensemble and featuring Stephanie Zelnick on clarinet, provides 62 minutes of Gould's best classical writing. Its lyricism and orchestration capture the era of confidence and strength.
