Orchestral compositions by Kenneth G. Mills, conducted by Mark Skazinetsky. Sixty-five of Canada’s finest musicians united to bring forth Kenneth Mills’s first orchestral recording. His music expands the imagination and reveals the untouched potential of the melodies and rich harmonies of the diatonic scale.
“In these three works of Kenneth Mills, refreshment abounds: the evocation of a magnificent blooming world in ‘Majestic Landscape,’ the fluttering magic of ‘Fireflies,’ the triumphant resolution of ‘Surreal.’ Expressive melodies flow forth, wrapped in a kaleidoscopic orchestral palette; exquisite solo passages are executed fluently and with great feeling.” – Michael Small, Film Composer
“Playing, conducting and listening to Kenneth Mills’s compositions is like being inside the music. He uses the beautiful colours of each instrument of the orchestra in a magical way and brings to the listener an incredible experience of the imagination and soul of Music.” – Mark Skazinetsky, Conductor, and Associate Concertmaster of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra
