Re: David Maslanka Sax Pieces
This past year I played tenor in an honor band that played a Maslanka piece, it was called "Testament Music for a Time of Trial". It was pretty cool, he wrote it after 9/11. At its peak (after a lengthy accelerando) the drummer mic up a siren, it gets pretty loud. I heard my sectional teacher talk about hell's gate, he said it was pretty awesome. Our conductor (I think, I might be wrong) was from ASU, and apparently they are Maslanka freaks there. No idea about the mouthpieces though.
