Intended as a resource for conductors interested in performing Carter Pann’s Symphony for Winds: My Brother’s Brain, this document explores the composer’s life and influences, shares his personal reflections about the compositional process, provides an overview of his compositional style, and presents a descriptive analysis of the work. Analytical discussion includes how Pann employs “extreme” and “outrageous” musical gestures within form, melody, harmony, texture, and orchestration. Summary and conclusions depict Pann as “the maverick” of composers writing for the wind ensemble medium, with the author’s intent to encourage more wind band conductors to program his music.
