Essays and Sketches is an album of the unreleased works of American composer and longtime Sam Houston State University faculty member Newton D Strandberg. Featuring performances by orchestras and ensembles from around the globe, the four pieces on this recording serve as an astute collection of Strandberg's output as a composer. The release also serves as a retrospective of Strandberg's prolific career, housing a collection of writings, visual art, scores, and more, all compiled by the composer's peers, students and admirers at SHSU.
