Edition Peters - Albright's Postcards From Kansas: Welcome to Interstate 70. For Alto Sax & Piano. 10 separate postcards (8 with music).
In 1994, John Sampen and Marilyn Shrude initiated a commissioning project designed to represent the diversity of American art music since 1960. Seven composers (including John Adams, Milton Babbitt, and Pauline Oliveros) were invited to contribute 'postcard pieces' highlighting their unique musical styles. These postcards reproduce the 'manuscript' that Albright sent to Sampen in 1997 for this project, along with the instructions 'some assembly required'. Minimal instructions regarding sequencing, tempo, and style are provided on each card, but an additional postcard with an explanatory preface by Sampen is included. The ten 4' x 6' postcards are also suitable for mailing, and make a unique gift idea.
