Notes & Reviews:

"The spiky First Concerto was written in the mid 70s and given its premiere at Eastman in 1976. It's a turbulent three-movement dreamscape of ticking clocks, warped Lutheran chorales, surreal tarantellas, and mad virtuosity. Maslanka takes pains to paraphrase Jung, who claimed that "the seeds of a new order are apparent in chaos." Ms. Mascolo-David dispatches the difficult solo part with alarming ease. Some will find Maslanka's work excessive and unkempt, but I find it arresting and provocative-and, yes, moving. He is one of our most interesting current voices, and anyone seeking the best of recent symphonic thought should hear this." Gimbel, American Record Guide
