arr. Douglas Smith - Lorenz Corporation
This series consists of distinctive arrangements carefully written to capture the essence of woodwind, brass and string tonal color. The musical treatment (tempo, texture, counterpoint, articulation, dynamics) represents the arranger's concept of the text most often associated with the easily recognizable tunes. While each collection creates its own unique mood for the instrumental family for which it is written, there are several pieces that can be played simultaneously with the existing volumes: those titles marked with a "plus" sign may be used with brasses and woodwinds, while those marked with an asterisk may be played by all instruments to create a chamber orchestra.
