Exhibiting all of the factors which have made him such a popular composer of original works for band such as intelligent, idiomatic writing for each instrument, great playability, singable themes, rhythmic vitality, interesting percussion parts and, in short, an uncanny understanding of the school concert band and student musicians. Very highly recommended.
About Bach Series arranged by Alfred Reed
Masterful settings for concert band by the venerable Alfred Reed, these works have been scored to achieve richness and beauty without detracting from the textural construction created by Bach himself. Marvelous educational and program material!
