More world premieres from the enterprising Illinois State University Wind Symphony.

Once again, the enterprising Illinois State University Wind Symphony offers two world premiere recordings of the music of the distinguished American composer, David Maslanka. Written as a memorial for flutist Christine Capote, the orchestration for the Trombone Concerto contains one solo cello, representing Capote's cellist husband. Maslanka began the composition process for Symphony No. 8 with meditation and was shown scenes of widespread devastation, but the music is a celebration of life -- new life, continuity from the past to the future, hope, faith, joy, ecstatic vision and fierce determination.

"For those unfamiliar with this composer, the Symphony No. 8 is an excellent introduction. This is the most quintessentially Maslankian work I've heard." (Fanfare)
