Customer Reviews

Brilliant band music

Vincent Persichetti was an excellent and very versatile composer who nowadays has the reputation of being the greatest American composer of music for band (concert band, wind ensemble, whatever). It's a shame to see his other music overshadowed in this way, but for better or worse that's the current state of his reputation. I think this state of affairs is largely due to the popular success of his Divertimento, Opus 42, included in this collection, and in particular to the Mercury recording of it by the late great Frederick Fennel and the Eastman Symphonic Wind Ensemble from the early 1950s. (iTunes ought to buy that old LP and offer it here, along with all the other old classic monaural recordings making their appearance here lately. Are you listening, guys?) Persichetti's band music is expertly written -- don't expect to hear much of it at your kids' high school band concerts -- and it's all highly listenable. It has a hard-edged urban sound that I find most appealing. This album gets my highest recommendation.

This is one of the best band music

I'm in high school wind ensemble, and our ensemble played Symphony No. 6 for the state competition. This is the Best band music that our band has ever played. The various color of this music is great.

Great music!

I'm in junior high school wind ensemble, and Persichetti is one of our favorite composers. We played Pageant Op. 59 for a competition, and we DOMINATED! I think this is a great album, and those who love classical music will not be dissapointed.
