IUP Department of Music faculty, Zach Collins, tuba, and Heidi Lucas, horn, have released their second album of works for horn/tuba/piano as part of their group Eastern Standard. This work is in collaboration with Nazareth College faculty member,
Jacob Ertl, piano.
Entitled “Wanderlust,” the album consists of seven new works for this combination of instruments, all commissioned and premiered by Eastern Standard. Since its inception in the fall of 2014, the group has commissioned and premiered 12 new works for this
instrumentation, recorded 10 of them (and the two newest are slated for an upcoming recording project), and expanded the body of literature available for a group of this orchestration from 25 works to 37.
