The three wind concert presented on this disc were commissioned for principals of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and are world-premiere recordings. They explore the unique expressive capabilities of each instrument within the context of the concerto form. The compositional language in all cases is one firmly grounded in tonality yet each work bears the unique and unmistakeable stamp of their creator's voice.

Reviews
"Maazel gives wonderful support to terrific soloists, all of whom meet the considerable technical challenges and all of whom wring as much music as can be had from these works. The composers should all write thank-you notes, if they haven't already." - Steve Schwartz, Classical CD Review
