Sousa Marches For Piano composed by John Philip Sousa (1854-1932). For piano. Piano Collections. Classic. Intermediate-Advanced. Book. Published by Kevin Mayhew Publishers (KV.3611729).
The "March King" John Philip Sousa (1854-1932) wrote over 100 marches for his world-famous band. So great was their popularity that they appeared in many solo and ensemble arrangements, even including guitar, zither, mandolin and banjo. Given their original conception for wind instruments, and Sousa's predilection for, and skill in, transcription, arrangements for piano seem highly appropriate. Here are eight of the most popular marches, ranging from his earliest success: King Cotton, Semper Fidelis, Stars and Strips Forever, The Gladiator, The High School Cadets, The Manhattan Beach, The Thunderer, and The Washington Post. For intermediate-advanced piano.
