Notes and Editorial Reviews

The "Legacy of the March CD continues the ensemble’s commitment to preserving and disseminating the rich but now little-known heritage of march music produced by American composers in the early 20th century. In addition to the seven potpourri discs issued so far, the TAMU forces have also produced a separate CD devoted entirely to Karl L. King (1891–1971). This disc features four marches by King and one apiece by each of the other composers listed in the header; with the exception of conductor Timothy Rhea’s own TSG March from 2010, all of the pieces are contemporaneous with those of Sousa, dating from between 1902 Read more and 1931, and are broadly similar in style and harmonic vocabulary. With one exception, the booklet notes thoughtfully provide both the birth and death dates of each composer and the date the particular march was written (the other two CDs provide dates for the compositions but are less thorough regarding biographical data). For the otherwise unidentified Amazonas of F. Salutari/Maurice Ford I could locate absolutely no information about Salutari— not even a first name—but found that transcriber Maurice Eugene Ford (1915–2000) was a lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy and onetime director of the U.S. Navy Band, and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. While listening successively to 20 marches drawn from a single small stylistic circle can quickly lead to tedium for anyone but a die-hard devotee of the genre, taking them in a few at a time affords delightful listening. The TAMU forces are to be congratulated for this novel and worthwhile enterprise, and encouraged to continue it."
