Quick Overview

Maslanka's Symphony No. 8 is a massive three-movement "celebration of life - new life, continuity from the past to the future, hope, faith, joy, ecstatic vision and fierce determination." (Albany Records) Since its premiere by the Illinois State University Wind Symphony, Symphony No. 8 has been embraced by better wind ensembles across the country. Listen to the ISU Wind Symphony, under the direction of Stephen K. Steel, in the live concert premiere on YouTube: "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)
