ILLINOIS STATE UNIVERSITY WIND SYMPHONY

Conductor MARTIN SEGGELKE

House Plants in Terra Cotta Pots Roy Magnusson

Duae Cantatae Breves Sydney Hodkinson

Evening Music Jayce John Ogren

Sinfonia no 1 “Kaprekar” Francesco Jose Martinez

This much lauded series continues with a sequence of four premiere recordings played by the elite Illinois State University Wind Symphony. Roy Magnuson's House Plants in Terracotta Pots is described by the composer 'as a simple statement of something simply thought.' Sydney Hodkinson's expressive Duae Cantatae Breves explores the slow and meditative potential of the wind band. Jayce John Ogren's richly imagined and poetic Evening Music is followed by Francesco José Martínez Gallego's exciting, monumental Sinfonía No. 1 'Kaprekar'.
