Fanfare on NAS Homepage

Ashley Thorne

Recent visitors to our website (with their volume turned up) may have noticed that we have added a musical opening to our homepage. NAS.org now greets readers with a festive fanfare; these are the opening bars of Gateways, the title piece of the 2001 album by composer Daniel Asia. 

To sample and purchase Gateways and other works by Mr. Asia in iTunes, click here. The Cincinnati Enquirer called Gateways “a brilliant fanfare with appealing character and colorful, Stravinsky-esque harmony and texture. Its superb orchestration is evidence of the craftsmanship of this composer.” Read what others are saying about Gateways here. 

Daniel Asia has been Professor of Music at the University of Arizona since 1988 and he is the president of the Arizona affiliate of the National Association of Scholars. We are honored to present his work on our website.
