Richard K. Hansen - GIA Publications
Band historian Richard K. Hansen offers the most thorough work of its kind ever published. In Part 1, he explores the seminal traditions of the ancient Aztecs, the Colonial drum and fife troops, the Golden Age of bands, and the founding of the modern wind band movement. Part 2 takes the major events from Part 1 and puts them in the context of U.S. history, the related arts in Western civilization, and other musical events in America. This outstanding reference is presented in table form, making it an indispensable resource for all band directors and music historians. In Part 3, Hansen points to directions for future research, and looks to a bright future for the wind band tradition.
