 Naxos' Sousa Series In High Gear July 10, 2014 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "England's Central Band of the Royal Air Force proves itself as a supremely polished and sharp concert band in this very excellent new Naxos disk, the 14th volume in the series dedicated to John Philip Sousa's music for wind band. Especially noteworthy is the ensemble's brilliant playing in the disk's keynote work- The International Congress. This is a 25 minute long kaleidoscope of nationalistic and patriotic melodies from many countries, all ingeniously arranged and integrated by Sousa into a smooth concert piece of near symphonic proportions. There is plenty of oomph in the brass and percussion throughout the entire program (after all, this is Sousa!), but the listener will also be highly impressed by the quality of the RAF Band's wind section. All in all, the International Congress is a work which by itself justifies the entire recording, but please rest assured that the other shorter selections are just as good. If you like band music, this disk is for you. Very much recommended." Report Abuse
