Territories for Band, Dan Maske                     A lengthy introduction begins this four
    section-work where each one acts like a movement, or unique musical territory.
    Three of the territories are governed by their own theme while the final one uses all
    the themes, either working with each other or against each other, as if rulers were
    dueling with rivals in their respective territories. This work, commissioned by
    Thomas Dvorak and the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Junior Wind Ensemble, was
    premiered in October at the 1998 Wisconsin Music Educators Association\s
    Conference in Madison, WI.
