Notes & Reviews:

A unique album, Music for the Tsars features music never before released outside of it's home country. With scores provided by the Russian Institute for the History of the Arts, the University of Georgia Music Department brings the wonder of your favorite Russian composers to life.+ Located in St. Petersburg in the former palace of Count V.P. Zubov, the Russian Institute for the History of the Arts is one of Russia's most important repositories of musical treasure. The holdings of the institute include more than 36,000 volumes of music, among which are a number of nineteenth century works for wind band and other instrumental works that were presented as gifts for different tsars of composed for royal events. The most important of these works are three marches for band composed by Gioachani Rossini in 1834 for Tsar Nicholas I. "Music For The Tsars" includes a dozen never before recorded works from the institute's archives, including the three Rossini marches. The recordings were made by faculty and students at the University of Georgia's Hugh Hodgson School of Music, including the UGA Wind Ensemble, The Hidgson Singers, and a number of faculty members. Extensive program notes by project director George C. Foreman provide thorough background information on the composers and each work.
