Courtly Airs and Dances by Ron Nelson (1929-). For Concert Band. Grade 3. Score. Duration 12:00. Published by LudwigMasters Publications (LG.10105363).
One of the best selling titles in the Ludwig Music catalog, this classic Ron Nelson work is a terrific addition to any band's repertoire. While offering a challenge to grade 3-level bands, it works equally well for more advanced players. Based on dance styles of the 16th century but with contemporary additions of meter and harmony, the six-movement work is wonderfully balanced. It is on many state music lists and is a sure-fire winner on any concert or contest program.
