American composer David Maslanka (b. 1943) is a composer who writes for a variety of genres, including works for choir, concert band, chamber music, and orchestra. Best known for his highly acclaimed wind ensemble compositions, Maslanka has published nearly 100 pieces, including seven Symphonies for Band, nine concerti, and a full Mass. Maslanka's compositional style can be rhythmically intense and extremely complex, yet it also possesses at points an underlying delicate beauty. He is a composer who works from a meditative standpoint of spiritual inspiration, and this gentle, warm spiritual quality can be felt in his music.
Maslanka's compositions have been performed throughout the United States and Europé, as well as Australia, Canada, and Japan.
