Claudio Grafulla/Schissel - C L Barnhouse Company
Grafulla's great march has been called a masterpiece, a band classic, as well as the prototype of the concert march. It takes a special composition to get such rave reviews, and this one delivers. With elements of both the Italian and German marches, the composer strikes a fine balance between technique and melody. Schissel provides here an impressive setting for modern concert band instrumentation, complete with a style guide for an authentic performance.
