"John Robilette begins his unusual, somewhat old-fashioned programme with two Bach transcriptions by Kempff (with a reminder in his informative booklet notes that Bach transcribed his and other composers' music long before 'transcriptions' became a dirty word). Instantly noticeable from Robilette's playing of Kempff's transcription of Bach's Siciliano is the sheer beauty and quality of tone he produces from his instrument.

The Chicago Gargoyle Brass was founded in 1992 by its Artistic Director, H. Rodney Holmes, as a chamber group of faculty and students at the University of Chicago, whose campus architecture boasts a charming variety of the ensemble’s namesake. By 2006, the ensemble had slowly professionalized and established a residency in the western suburbs at a major church with a full-time professional organist. Over the next five years, the group transformed itself into a specialized brass and organ concert ensemble, comprised of classically trained musicians, performing a wide variety of repertoire in an equally diverse range of settings. Well into its third decade, the Chicago Gargoyle Brass and Organ Ensemble maintains its position at the cutting edge of music for brass and organ, commissioning and performing new arrangements and compositions for that instrumental pairing.

It all started with William Butler Yates' poem, The Wild Swans at Coole. One October day, as I was reading and reflecting on this wonderful poem, a melody for the opening line (The trees are in their Autumn Beauty) came to me. Several hours later, seated at the piano, I had written the opening to the song. In the following days, as I worked on it, the idea came up to write a song-cycle of poems on the subject of birds.
