Product Description

Amazon.com

Just for fun, try playing this CD as a quiz for a musically knowledgeable friend. You can give one hint: the composer is well known. As the suite from the operetta The Bride Elect proceeds, you'll probably get guesses like Johann Strauss (during the opening waltz), Offenbach, or Victor Herbert. But when the concluding number, a march, arrives, the composer will be obvious. Sousa's operettas, if one judges from these orchestral selections, aren't highly original or even outstandingly tuneful. But they are good light entertainment, especially as played by this crack group of Slovak players under the direction of Sousa expert Keith Brion. Naxos's recording is as crisp and clear as the orchestral playing. Nice design, helpful program notes. --Leslie Gerber

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have all four of Keith Brion's recordings of Herbert and Sousa with the Razumovsky Symphony and they are a total delight. The playing is spiffy and spirited, and the sound engineering is quite impressive. As for the items on this CD, you may be surprised to find that Sousa writes delightful waltzes. The ballet, People Who Live in Glass Houses, is a splendid set of character pieces, with a great deal of wit. The Overture to Our Flirtations, premiered when Sousa was 26, is a fully fleshed out orchestral piece that deserves revival by our symphony orchestras. If all this rare Sousa sends you swimming, there is always the El Capitain March to help you find your bearings. It's done to a fare-thee-well, but so is everything on this spendid collection.
