Thoughtful Wanderings
Compositions by Douglas Hill
Douglas Hill
BOXED 2-COMPACT DISK SET


"Douglas Hill has achieved a true synthesis in works of art that reach out and grab your very soul."—Bruce Hangen, Symphony Magazine

This two-CD set amply demonstrates composer Douglas Hill's eclectic work from the late 1970s to 2000, including classical and jazz pieces for solo horn, horn and piano duet, brass ensembles, and voice with horn and full orchestra. Themes of nature are lyrically expressed in such works as 'Homage to Thoreau', 'A Place for Hawks' (inspired by Wisconsin writer August Derleth), 'Thoughtful Wanderings' (inspired by Native American flutes and drums), and 'To the Winter Sun', a winter solstice piece featuring the alphorn. The pieces are performed by Hill himself and by alumni, faculty, students, and staff of the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Music.

Douglas Hill is recognized internationally as both a composer and a horn soloist; he is principal horn for the Madison Symphony Orchestra and a member of the Wisconsin Brass Quintet. He is professor of music (horn) and Emily Mead Baldwin Bell–Bascom Professor of the Creative Arts at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
