In addition to his work as a composer, Jonathan Newman is the Director of Composition & Coordinator of New Music at the Shenandoah Conservatory; he was also a founding member of the composer consortium BCM International.

During the course of our conversation, we talked about writing for educational ensembles, the history and impact of BCM International, and being “pigeonholed”.

Anne Lanzilotti is a violist, composer, and fierce advocate of contemporary music. She is a member of The Rhythm Method string quartet, co-founder for Kalikolehua — El Sistema Hawai‘i, and a member of the string faculty at NYU Steinhardt, and she created “Shaken Not Stuttered”, an online resource of extended techniques for strings used in Andrew Norman’s orchestral and chamber works.

During the course of our conversation, she and I talked about collaboration, the joys and challenges of commissioning, and new music advocacy.

For this week's episode, I sat down to chat with David and Matthew Maslanka. David is a renowned composer, often known for his extensive catalog of works for wind ensemble; and Matthew, David's son, is a euphonist and engraver, and handles the operations for publishing David's music.

During the course of the conversation, we talked about the trajectory of David's career and the important changes he made and risks he took along the way, how Matthew handles publishing David's works, and the importance of being true to your music and yourself.

In her first appearance on the show, exactly 30 episodes ago, Dale Trumbore mentioned How to Go On, her secular requiem commissioned by Choral Arts Initiative. She explained the plan to premiere and record the piece with the ensemble, and promised to be back to talk about the process.

So this week, she and CAI Artistic Director Brandon Elliott join me to talk about the process of the preparation and recording of the album: from the project's genesis through fundraising, marketing recording, and post-production, up to the impending release this month.
