Reference Recordings’ relationship with composer Adam Schoenberg continues next month with another world premiere! Sunday March 5, 2017, The University of Texas Wind Ensemble, conducted by Jerry Junkin, performs the world premiere of renowned composer Adam Schoenberg’s Symphony No. 2 at Bass Concert Hall in Austin, Texas. The week following the performance, the wind ensemble will be recording the work for a new Reference Recordings release!
Adam Schoenberg has quickly become one of the best known and most frequently performed American composers of his generation. Full of “mystery and sensuality” (The New York Times), Schoenberg’s music embraces both warm tonality and gentle chromaticism and has been heralded as “open, bold, and optimistic” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution).
Conducted by Jerry F. Junkin, The University of Texas Wind Ensemble has firmly established itself as one of America’s elite wind bands. Active in the area of commissioning new music, the group has premiered performances of works by composers like John Corigliano, Michael Daugherty, Donald Grantham, John Mackey, David Maslanka, and Dan Welcher.
