The purpose of the lecture/recital was to demonstrate how pioneering composers such as Vincent Persichetti, Karel Husa, Joseph Schwantner, Michael Colgrass, and David Maslanka helped create the modem day wind ensemble percussion section. The Lecture/Recital consisted of a demonstration of extended techniques used in each of these composers’ works for wind ensemble, which enabled the composers to add different colors and timbres to the music. The lecture also included illustrations of possible setups and the number of percussion instruments utilized for each composition. A performance of various excerpts from each work concluded the lecture/recital.
