Program Notes

Scenes for Wind Ensemble (2015) was commissioned in 2015 by Andrew DeNicola, director of the J.P. Stevens High School Wind Ensemble in Edison, New Jersey. Mr. Yurko offers the following about the work and its commissioning ensemble:

This outstanding wind ensemble has won many awards for their performances and interpretations of the masterpieces of the wind ensemble literature. I have had the honor of guest conducting this ensemble on many occasions.

Scenes for Wind Ensemble is really a concerto for wind ensemble. Each scene showcases the wind ensemble in ever changing choirs from the full ensemble to smaller chamber ensembles.
