Music For Band By Percy Grainger
Dallas Wind Symphony
Conducted by Jerry Junkin
Reference Recordings is proud to release LINCOLNSHIRE POSY: Music For Band By Percy Grainger performed by the Dallas Wind Symphony conducted by Jerry Junkin.
This album showcases the wind band music of Percy Grainger, including favorites LINCOLNSHIRE POSY and DANNY BOY ("Irish Tune from County Derry"). Australia considers Grainger its greatest composer; the United States of America, where he lived most of his life, praises him as a music educator, composer and arranger of band music; and England considers him supremely important in the preservation and arrangement of British folk songs.
These Grainger gems are performed to perfection by America's only full-time professional wind band, conducted by Jerry Junkin. Grainger specified many unusual, optional, instruments, and this recording has them all. Hear these original instrument performances in the spectacular sonics captured by Reference Recordings' world-renowned team of engineer Keith Johnson and producer Tam Henderson.
The master tapes were recorded at 176.4 kHz, 24 bits and prepared for CD release with HDCD technology.
Reference Recordings are distributed in Australia by Rockian Trading
