Description: Broughton's breezy overture is from his music for the 1985 western Silverado, and sounds like what it is; high quality film music. Ticheli's Sanctuary, as the title suggests, exudes an enfolding warmth in a consoling, thoroughly tonal vocabulary. Yabe's piece is a programmatic tone-poem, a fantasy of an otherworldly nocturnal celebration by hosts of goblins and spirits. After a mysterious shadowy introduction the celebration bursts into full swing in an orgiastic, rhythmic dance, punctuated by episodes of seductive melodiousness. The Tull is a bold and dramatic piece in a lively and entertaining style. UNLV Wind Orchestra; Thomas G. Leslie.
