Maslanka Weekly highlights excellent performances of David Maslanka’s music from around the web.
Each December, Maslanka Weekly will feature the best performances of David’s most popular works that were uploaded to the web that calendar year. This December, we will feature the best performances uploaded to the web in 2019, highlighting a different work each week. We continue this week by showcasing four extraordinary performances of Illumination from 2019.
From David’s Program Note:
“Illumination” – lighting up, bringing light. I am especially interested in composing music for young people that allows them a vibrant experience of their own creative energy. A powerful experience of this sort stays in the heart and mind as a channel for creative energy, no matter what the life path. Music shared in community brings this vital force to everyone. Illumination is an open and cheerful piece in a quick tempo, with a very direct A-B-A song form.
