Notes and Editorial Reviews

Altissimo is proud to present The Heritage of John Philip Sousa from the Robert Hoe Collection. These recordings have not been available to the public, and thus over the years, The Heritage of John Philip Sousa became known as the single most respected collection of Sousa recordings. Now, for the first time ever, you can own these rare recordings from the one and only March King. Presented here are nine 2-disc volumes digitally re-mastered from vinyl for optimal sound quality, complete with full liner notes taken from the vinyl, filled with stories, biographies, historic pictures, and descriptions of each piece. Along with his popular, well-known marches, this collection also features Sousa’s other great works such as waltzes, suites, Read more operettas, tone poems, and fantasies that are often neglected.

“To collectors of any genre there is always some Holy Grail or treasure that when found makes collecting worthwhile. For military march collectors, one of these ‘treasures’ is the legendary 18 LP series, The Heritage of John Philip Sousa issued by the US Marine Band. These recordings made almost 40 years ago still have the sparkle and spirit of Sousa as only the US Marine Band can play them.”

– Barbu Alim, Chairman, US Branch, International Military Music Society, May 2011
