Golia, Vinny Large Ensemble: Overview; 1996-2006 [CD + DVD] (Nine Winds)
Label: Nine Winds    
Released in: USA    

"This set of 2 CDs and 2 DVDs is an overview of 4 concerts selected from 1996 to 2006.

The Portland concert (1996) was the Large Ensemble's last concert on a tour of the west coast of the United States. The second set was released in its entirety as "Portland 1996" (Nine Winds NWCD0180). The first set is too long to be released completely, so a portion of the composition "GCG" and the percussion duets was edited for time constraints.

The Bing Concert at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2000) was the second day of a series of concerts in Ventura and Los Angeles, California, the recording is of the first set.

Over the span of 10 years (1996-2006) the band expanded and became a chamber orchestra. (This large chamber ensemble is closer to my original conception of the group, which was formed in March of 1982).

At the REDCAT concerts, (2006) the idea of the Large Ensemble as a chamber orchestra is in full bloom, with our largest contingent of strings, woodwind, and brass sections. The REDCAT concert series was a two day event, with a unique second day which featured Master Drummer Alfred Lapzedo and an African drum ensemble that joined the Large Ensemble for the second set.

The DVDs are captures of the REDCAT concerts and were edited by the film maker Anal Shan using one sttionary and one hand held camera which were subsequently blended together for the footatge."-Vinny Golia, Los Angeles 2012
