Anthony Gilbert : Dream Carousels

Both Anthony Gilbert's brilliant woodwind writing and his long association with the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester are showcased on this disc, featuring performances by the RNCM's acclaimed New Ensemble and Wind Orchestra.

"With engaging performances and clear, crisp recordings, this disc serves Gilbert's cause admirably. Other companies please take note."
