Cast in one movement with many "subplots," Maha Mantras is a concerto for saxophonist switching between Soprano and Alto, featuring a dazzling tour-de-force cadenza in which the soloist plays both instruments simultaneously. A profound synthesis of Prangcharoen's native Thai soundworld and Western symphonic tradition, Maha Mantras is based on pentatonic themes tinged with highly ornate and chromatic shadings. The work's title indicates a magnification and development of the composer's earlier work Mantras, both compositions inspired by the creation of music as a healing force. For advanced performers. Duration: 17'.
