On Friday, February 20, the University of Texas Wind Ensemble celebrates the 10th anniversary of John Corigliano’s astonishing Circus Maximus at Bass Concert Hall. Of the 2005 premiere, Robert Faires of the Austin Chronicle wrote, “Circus Maximus was more than a concert; it was an event.” The contrasts between whispering and roaring notes, along with the placement of performers in various pockets of the hall, keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. The echoing sound of a shotgun blast is the icing on this contemporary piece’s cake.
