Notes and Editorial Reviews

As the military wind band began to assume the stature of a concert-giving ensemble, the operas and music dramas of Richard Wagner became a primary source from which to borrow appropriate musical fare. The extensive list of transcriptions of the well-known excerpts from his output exceed in number, therefore, all other sources from which the band has borrowed its program materials.

The two famous excperts from his music dramas, operas, and festival plays on this CD have long been associated with the music that bands perform. (The remaining titles in "Wagner for Band" are available on Mercury Living Presence 434322). These performances by the
Read more regular instrumentation of the Eastman Wind Ensemble are from the standard published editions. Credits for the transcriptions are as follows: Victor Grabel: Rienzi Overture (Barnhouse); Dan Godfrey: "Good Friday Music" from Parsifal (Chappell).
