Following the success of WindSync’s recording of Miguel del Aguila’s Wind Quintet No. 2, released on the quintet’s album All Worlds All Times, the pair returned to the studio—this time, the legendary Studio Two at Abbey Road Studios in London—to record the present monograph of del Aguila’s works for winds. This milieu connects rather poetically to WindSync’s founding principles. Although Abbey Road is now associated with the likes of Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton and, of course, The Beatles, or with the famous soundtracks to the Star Wars and Harry Potter movies also captured there, the first musician to record in the studio was British classical composer Edward Elgar, with the London Symphony Orchestra. By playing del Aguila’s music into the studio’s arsenal of historic microphones—the same ones used by The Beatles—WindSync reaches into Abbey Road’s storied past to acknowledge its classical roots, while marrying that tradition with the dressed-down, boyband accessibility that inspired the quintet’s cheeky name.
