Notes & Reviews:

"The President's Own United States Marine Band, established in 1798, is a tremendously virtuosic and accomplished ensemble, as this collection shows. The players handle the intricacies of Stravinsky's Symphonies of Wind Instruments with exceptional finesse, making this one of the most intelligent, flowing, and expressive performances on disc... Glorious, naturally impactful sonics complete the picture. This is a marvelous disc in every respect, and we can only hope that it marks the beginning of a series featuring this ensemble." -Classics Today (10/10)
