Few contemporary groups are as versatile as the Ohio State University Wind Symphony, and their exploration of new and exciting wind music is second-to-none. This largely American program centers on two works by Frank Ticheli: Rest, a beguiling piece dedicated to the memory of the father of conductor Russel Mikkelson, and Symphony No. 1 which, in the words of the composer, represents ‘a kind of journey of the soul – from innocence, to introspection, to darkness, and finally to enlightenment.’ Michael Gibertson’s Vigil is nocturnal and lyrical in character, while John Mackey’s Asphalt Cocktail promises the scariest taxi ride of your life. There is also a real rarity from Gustav Holst.
