The UCSB Wind Ensemble with Paul Bambach, Director, and Amanda Kritzberg, Graduate Assistant, will perform works that harken from the earliest band heritage such as Percy Grainger's wind setting of the reel, "Molly on the Shore" or Darius Milhaud's "Suite Francaise," a composition fit for (in Milaud's own words) "American high schools, colleges and universities where the youth of the nation be found... It is obvious that they need music of their time...keeping the characteristic idiom of the composer." The concert will feature nine musicians in Charles Gounod's "Petite Symphonie," written for the standard wind serenade octet (pairs of oboes, clarinets, bassoons and french horns) and French flutist and founder of the "Société de Musique de la Chambre pour Instruments à Vent," Paul Taffanel. Also performed will be Vincent Persichetti's "Bagatelles for Band," the first Frank Ticheli Composition Contest Award winning composition, "Shadow Rituals" by Michael Markowski and works by Frank Ticheli, including "Blue Shades."
