Notes & Reviews:

The practice of operatic music being transcribed for winds was known to Mozart and practiced during the lifetimes of Beethoven, Weber, Rossini, Wagner and Verdi. There is a dimension about this music that provides unique musical challenges, cultivating a style of expressive playing deeply rooted in the vocal tradition, and not found in any other genre. Grand Scenes was recorded by "The President's Own" United States Marine Band led by Colonel Foley.
