David Maslanka (1943-2017)

We were extremely saddened to hear of the death of David Maslanka on August 6th 2017. As a composer he championed the saxophone, writing some spectacularly beautiful music for the saxophone in many settings. He is a firm favourite composer for the Laefer Quartet and we were delighted to recently perform his Recitation Book in our St. George's Beckenham recital, and would like to share with you the fourth movement, 'Meditation on the Gregorian Chant O Salutaris Hostia (O Salvation’s Victim)'.
