Colin McPhee - Concerto for Piano and Wind Octet

Linda Lee Thomas, piano
Players of the CBC Vancouver Orchestra  - John Avison, conductor

It is one of the biggest regrets of my college years that I turned down the chance to play this piece, I never had the chance to do it again.   Obviously this was a well played record.

Update:  It was the last movement, I knew it would take a lot more practice and rehearsal to pull off than I had time for that year.  I had my senior recital, too.   I think if I'd had been asked a year in advance I might have done it and put it in my recital program.   Wind players!  They don't get that you've got more than one note at a time to play.
