 "The Solitary Dancer… is a masterpiece in economy of resources, sensitivity for wind and percussion colors, and subtle development and recession of instrumental and musical frenzy, It is not surprising to find another perfect jewel for winds from Warren Benson."

 

    -The Instrumentalist

“His two symphonies are landmarks in band music…in their different ways they demonstrate the high potential that is offered by the concert band of today.”

 

    -The American Symphony

 

Warren Benson
