Stuart Dempster, principal trombonist of the Oakland Symphony, and faculty member at the San Francisco Conservatory and San Francisco State College, presents a recital of six premieres, including three works commissioned by himself. This concert was held on June 24, 1966 at the San Francisco Tape Music Center. The concert is announced by Charles Boone, composer and officer of the Composers' Forum. During the intermission he interviews Mr. Dempster, who discusses his instrument and his commissions. Composer Robert Erickson is also interviewed, and he discusses his teaching as well as his music. This is a good recording of a fine concert of avant-garde music.
