Mother Earth Fanfare

David Maslanka

 

Mother Earth Fanfare Program note by the composer:

Praised by You, my Lord, for our sister, MOTHER EARTH, Who nourishes us and teaches us,
Bringing forth all kinds of fruits and colored flowers and herbs.

St. Francis of Assisi

David Maslanka (b.1943) attended Oberlin College and did masters and doctoral study at Michigan State University. He has served on the faculties of the State University of New York, Sarah Lawrence College, New York University, and Kingsborough Community College. Since 1990 he has been a freelance composer and lives in Missoula, Montana.

Maslanka writes for a variety of genres, including choir, wind ensemble, chamber music, and symphony orchestra. He has published over 100 pieces, includ- ing symphonies, chamber pieces, solos, concerti, and a full Mass. His compositional style is rhythmically intense and extremely complex, yet possesses an underlying delicate beauty. He works from a meditative standpoint of spiritual inspiration, and this gentle, warm quality permeates his music.
