Notes & Reviews:

Heritage of the March is a series of 185 vinyl records of marches and galops released from 1973 to the early 1980's. It remains as the largest single march music record series in history, featuring close to 3,000 different marches! Volumes 7 and 8 feature the marches of Russell Alexander, Gabriel Pares, Joseph Olivadoti, and Franz Lehar, a combination of American, French, and Hungarian composers. These marches highlight the best of the genre from both the United States and Europe, re-mastered for CD release. Altissimo! Recordings is proud to release the next installment of this classic collection as a two-volume set.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The Heritage of the March series was a gigantic project: 3000 marches committed to 185 LP albums from 1973 to 1988. Volumes 7 and 8 (each about 36 minutes) offer 28 marches by Russell Alexander, Gabriel Pares, Joseph Olivadoti, and Franz Lehar. All are good marches. I am taken by the ones by Pares (1860-1934), a member and leader of various French bands. 'Le Grognard' (Veteran's March) and 'Le Voltigeur' (Light Infantrymen) are each about four minutes long, twice the length of most marches. They have lots of interesting elements and burst with soul-stirring spirit, the kind Sousa meant when he said that "a good march should make a man with a wooden leg want to step out". Of the WW II marches by Italian-American composer Joseph Olivadoti (1893-1977), I am most taken by the very lively 'Air Waves' and the very lyrical 'National Victors'. 'We Are the Navy' includes lyrics sung by the Navy Sea Chanters. The one known name here is Franz Lehar (1870-1948), he of The Merry Widow. All of these pieces are played with energy and precision by the Navy Band.
