Notes and Editorial Reviews

Here is a symphonic band disc which will appeal to the broad mainstream of classical music lover; beautifully played and recorded. The Marine Band's "Grand Scenes" should remove all skeptical doubts from music lovers whose preconceived judgement have placed limitations on bands. Organists can only dream of this limitless range of tone color. Even Leopold Stokowski, who had access to the greatest orchestras that have ever existed, would schedule performances with bands. Beethoven considered the music more important than the medium, and suggested that arrangements be made of a number of his works. Berlioz and Wagner heard their music performed in transcriptions for winds and spoke approvingly of the adaptations. As Pablo Casals said: "In all Read more work there is the color of the instruments for which the works were written. The strictly musical value is above the instrumental value, and it should predominate. Why, then, shouldn't it be transferred to other instruments? Bach did it consistently; why shouldn't we do it?"
