Customer Reviews

Another wind recording masterpiece...

Leave it to the Marine Band to pull off another outstanding set of adapted wind transcriptions that rival the original full symphony orchestral versions. Duker's wind arrangement of The Pines of Rome has never sounded better on record, the sweeping rendition of Chadwick's Jubilee is technically and musically outstanding, and Colonel Bourgeois' own transcription of Hongroise is played with style, accuracy, and flawless interpretation. I don't mean to leave out Kozhevnikov's original wind piece, Symphony No. 3...another stirring and exciting performance. Overall, a perfect example of why so many are in love with the wind ensemble medium, from Sousa's time to today.

A Great Choice by the Director

There is a good reason why this album is called directors choice. These tracks are truly some of the choicest by the marine band. I got this album as part of Altissimo's disc on demand program. You can check it out by going to military music dot com. Many of these are from the great Russian Composer Alexander Glazunov. He played a key role in reestablishing the several Russian Conservatories after the Bolshevik Revolution. These selections are amongst my favorite from this album. If you like this one also check out this album by the US Marine Band: Sousa II sousa, Symphony No. 3 Slavyanskaya, russian composer, military music, marine band, altissimo,
