Notes and Editorial Reviews

3-Disc Set!

This 3 disc set features an excellent selection of famous orchestral works arranged for Symphonic Band by Mark. H. Hindsley (1905 – 1999).

His self-published manuscript transcriptions for concert band are still used in all 50 states and in 14 countries on four continents. Dr. Hindsley's transcriptions have been hailed as magnificent works of art bringing together the original composer's sounds with today's sound of the Symphonic Band.
