One of the most distinctive of marches, VALDRES has been described as a "petite Norwegian tone-poem set in march-time". Loras Schissel's splendid new arrangement of the famous Norwegian march "Valdres" was created by blending several concert versions of the piece that were created by composer Johannes Hanssen during the last years of his life. Perfect for concert or contest use, this superior edition should be in the library of all good bands!
