World premiere recordings of major works for wind ensemble by David Maslanka and Kimberly Archer.

This most recent recording from the ever-adventurous Illinois State University Wind Symphony includes a new work by David Maslanka using poems by Illinois native Carl Sandburg. The 11 poems tell both an American, and a very deep human story. Maslanka brought folk songs from the Ruth Crawford Seeger collection into the music enhancing the American spirit of the work. The other major work, Symphony No. 3, is by Kimberly Archer, a former student of Maslanka's and currently am assistant professor of composition at Southern Illinois University.

Review:
"..A Carl Sandburg Reader is perhaps Maslanka's most genuine, poignant, and beautiful musical statement to date. ...an extremely moving musical experience." (Fanfare)
