Composers on Composing
Contributing composers: James Curnow, Johan de Meij, Julie Giroux, Donald Grantham, Robert Jager, Pierre la Plante, David Maslanka, Philip Sparke, Eric Whitacre, and Dana Wilson
Composers on Composing for Band, Volume Two, picks up where volume one left off, opening the door to the creative genius of ten more composers at the top of their field.
A valuable resource for directors at all levels, each chapter is dedicated to the experiences and works of a single composer, culminating with a complete list of repertoire by grade level.
In a format that is consistent throughout, composers discuss their earliest experiences in music and their thoughts on the creative process; the approach to orchestration, conducting, and score study; the relationship between the composer and the commissioner; how to work with young composers; influential mentors, works, and composers; and the future of the wind band.
