Review: By virtue of his brilliance as one of the foremost instrumental composers of our time, Restless Wind presents a stunning journey documenting George Winston's sociological observations in American history. Winston repurposes for the modern listener stunningly relevant works by a variety of musical greats This disc captures Winston's inimitable melodic language where piano textures and tones set the stage for vivid renderings of classic compositions.
