"It is always a treat to hear the UNLV Wind Orchestra and “Ventanas” is another fine recording by this superb ensemble.  The title work is a composition by Silvestre Revueltas (transcribed by Zane Douglass) and predates his famous “Sensemaya” by six years.  “Ventanas” (Windows) is a tone poem filled with dissonance, musical chaos and brief moments of lyricism. Also included on this recording is the pisturesque “Salmo della Rinascita” by Anthony LaBounty (influenced by the composer’s tour of Italy), Malcolm Arnold’s “Water Music”, a classic work for orchestra winds, and the brilliant “Celebration” by Bruce Broughton.  The remaining composition is Michael Kamen’s acclaimed work, “Concerto for Saxophone and Orchestra” (transcribed by Zane Douglass and performed by Eric Marienthal).
