Once again, the Saxon Wind Philharmonic under Thomas Clamor unleashes a veritable display of musical fireworks: On their new GENUIN CD the musicians take us to Russia—and all who are not yet fans of this fantastic ensemble would do well to come along! The recording offers numerous highlights: the syncopations of Shostakovich's Jazz Suite, the fairy tales of Stravinsky's Firebird, Tchaikovsky's buoyant Capriccio Italien and, not least, the fairy tale "Ruslan and Lyudmila." Once again, the Wind Philharmonic’s overwhelming splendor and captivating virtuosity are impressive. Hop on—go east!
