Notes and Editorial Reviews

This program features some splendid arrangements, including Serebrier’s own Suite from Bizet’s Carmen, Ginastera's Estancia Suite, with its sensational concluding Malambo, and a rousing “Stars and Stripes Forever” encore. The sonics are particularly good for a live band concert. This was fun!
