This is probably my favorite piece by world-famous contemporary composer Eric Whitacre, composed for wind band or orchestra with optional choir. I hope you enjoy Equus.

About 2-1/2 years ago, I had the privilege of hearing this piece live and conducted by the composer himself. In his introduction, he noted that the piece features an alternation between slow, heavenly music, to represent light, and fast, intense, dissonant music to represent darkness. I hope you enjoy Frank Ticheli’s masterful work for soprano and wind symphony, Angels in the Architecture.
Here’s an interesting composition: a Celtic-style piece for concert band by Michael Sweeney.

It’s a little late this time…but I’ve got one more David Maslanka piece for you – this is one of his latest works, the 9th Symphony for narrator and wind band. As with many of Maslanka’s works, this symphony draws its melodies from hymns and Bach chorales.
Next week I’ll move on to someone else.
