Frost Wind Ensemble

April 24, 2012 @ 8:00 PM
Maurice Gusman Concert Hall at The University of Miami

8pm - 10pm
Director: Gary Green

Experience the excitement of hearing two world premieres in Gusman Hall! First, the Frost Wind Ensemble presents Radiate – a 25-minute work in three movements with complex timbral interplay, composed by Prix de Rome winner Charles Mason. Throughout all three movements, bells figure prominently. They radiate complex waveforms, they announce beginnings and endings, they mark time, and they ultimately announce the impending move to inevitable new states of existence. Then, the wind ensemble premiere of Point Blank by Paul Dooley, originally composed for orchestra. The Frost School of Music and a consortium of its graduate conducting alumni who are now teaching in colleges and universities around the world commissioned the wind ensemble transcription. Paul Dooley’s music was recently described as “impressive and beautiful” by American composer Steve Reich.
