    We have our concert this evening with Northern Symphonic Winds. One of the pieces is Rhapsody for Horn and Winds by Jan van der Roost. (Same guy composed Puszta). Man, what a piece. The horn player is just phenomenal, as well. The piece has aleatoric elements (timed sections, noodling, clusters) yet also has some more traditional things as well. The rest is good, too, but this one really stands out for me. Other pieces: Mennin Canzona, Adam Gorb's Awayday, Ticheli's 2 Cajun Folk Songs, Eric Whitacre's October, and Copeland's Outdoor Overture. It's gonna be a good gig.
