Turbine : Owned

I received the CD today of the CBDNA performance of “Turbine,” performed by Rick Clary and the Florida State University Wind Orchestra. At the time of the concert, I thought it may have been the best performance I’ve ever had of any of my music, in any medium, ever. I wondered if I’d just been caught up in the moment. Now that I’ve heard the recording, though, I know my first impression was right.

This performance is, quite simply, a perfect rendition of “Turbine.” I don’t know how Rick Clary managed to fix every screwy balance issue in this thickly-scored piece, but he sure as hell did. The previous two FSU performances of the piece — posted here in February — were great, but this trumps them both, and by a lot.

I didn’t know the piece could ever sound this good. Check it out.
