In the summer of 2015, thirteen musicians came together from different corners of the world to try and create something special together. In the six years since that first artistic experiment, Maryland Chamber Winds has endeavored to bring professional wind music and high-quality educational programming to western Maryland and the surrounding region.
Preludes and Recitations, Maryland Chamber Winds' debut album, embodies the heart and soul of the ensemble and organization. The recorded works presented here represent a mixture of old music reimagined and contemporary music newly championed. The tracks include sound landscapes that range from simple and beautiful to thorny and challenging. These disparate soundworlds encompass Maryland Chamber Winds’ ideals of cultivating accessibility while simultaneously advocating for innovation in the field of wind music. In another light, the ‘preludes’ inspiration of the album notes this project as serving to begin our path forward, while we hope the ‘recitations’ will quite literally speak to our listeners!
