|We Sing To Each Other
by Steve Mauk
Dana Wilson is one of the most gifted composers to ever write for the saxophone. His ten compositions include
selections ranging from unaccompanied pieces to concerti. Wilson utilizes a variety of styles and musical influences, which keeps his music always fresh and unique. This article deals with his unaccompanied masterpiece for alto saxophone, We Sing to Each Other. The combined information in the article and on the CD will help saxophonists gain a better understanding of this work and how to prepare it for performance.
Steve Mauk is professor of saxophone at the Ithaca College School of Music. He is a noted performer with concerts in countries including England, Ireland, Scotland, Canada, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Russia, and Japan.
