Symphony No. 10
The River of Time
|Product Type: Scores|
David Maslanka’s wife of 37 years, Alison, was in the final stages of her terminal illness as he was writing Symphony No. 10. The work was shaped by the anticipation of her death. When David himself died only a month after Alison, the symphony was completed by his son Matthew after David’s passing. The work is profoundly concerned with death, grief, memory, and how to process trauma. It requires a deep emotional and technical investment from the performers but overwhelmingly rewards that commitment.
