Notes & Reviews:

Two world premiere recordings are offered on this most recent recording by the Illinois State University Wind Symphony - David Maslanka's O Earth, O Stars, a double concerto for flute and cello - and a work commissioned by the Wind Symphony from Latin Grammy Award Winner, Carlos Franzetti - his Symphony No. 3. Born in Argentina, Carlos Franzetti studied there, in Mexico and at Juilliard. From symphonies to big band jazz, from chamber works to Latin American music and film scores - he has no limits as a composer. Especially well known for his music for wind ensemble, composer David Maslanka has also written a wide variety of chamber, orchestral and choral works.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Carlos Franzetti's Symphony No. 3 lasts a little over 30 minutes, with much of the most complex music reserved for the opening sonata-form movement. The work abounds with surprising orchestrational touches that enlarge the usual palette of the wind symphony repertoire. The performances are expert, the sound full-bodied and inviting.
