I love La Boda de Luis Alonso!! I'm playing it in a community band and it's my new favorite Wind Ensemble piece. This recording of it is great! The Grand Fantasie from Die Walkure is really good. The US Marine Band tends to put out fantastic recordings of great Wind Ensemble pieces!
This Album Sets the Scene
This is an excellent album by the US Marine Band. This is the oldest of the US Service bands and this album certainly honors that long tradition. From the familiar William Tell Overture to the other classical masterpieces on this album you won't be disappointed. The album cover shows exactly the feel you will get. I just close my eyes and imagine sitting in one of those grand european opera houses. The music fits perfectly with the scene and if you download it you can sit right next to me in the queens box. If you enjoyed this album check out this one also by the US Marine band: The Bicentennial Collection
