Saint Lucia Morning— Music of Bernard Hoffer
Titanic Records is pleased to release "Saint Lucia Morning" featuring the West Texas A&M University Concert Band playing the music of Bernard Hoffer, conducted by Dr. Gary Garner. The disc features a recording of Hoffer's Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Large Wind Orchestra spectacularly performed by Albert Regni. Mr. Regni is the resident saxophonist with the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, and the New York City Ballet. He has performed with many of the major musical organizations of the world and has appeared on more than 75 recordings both as a soloist and with ensembles.

The title composition is a three movement tone poem inspired by the sounds and music of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, which the composer has visited frequently. Local sounds were recorded on a walkman and later transcribed into the fabric of the composition. You can hear cows lowing, dogs barking, lorries driving by in the distance, and of course the sounds of the market place with several radios blaring ethnic tunes at the same time. Also on the disc is "Solti," a short work for percussion ensemble and wind ensemble, featuring 5 percussion soloists from the WTAMU Band.
