WindWorks represents a relationship between the North Texas Wind Symphony and GIA Publications. Thanks to GIA’s generous support and commitment to wind music, it has been possible for the ensemble to continue to produce recordings of the highest quality. While the first 34 releases of the Cincinnati Wind Symphony and the North Texas Wind Symphony remain with the Klavier label, this expanded alliance consolidates all of the current projects under one publishing roof. These diverse offerings now include WindWorks, the Composer’s Collection, the Teaching Music through Performance in Band recordings, and Master Conductors, the DVD series. This growth in the catalog creates exciting possibilities and allows our artistic output to stay focused on the continued mission: to provide first-class recordings that accentuate the comprehensiveness, depth, and value of the medium and its repertoire.
Audibles is the eleventh recording in this wonderful series.

Audio Magazine: “The performances are expert, and the sound—which ranges from single wind instrument solos to a full band replete with thundering timpani and bass drum that can be felt through a subwoofer—is as good as it gets. There’s a remarkable combination of presence and stage depth.”
