J.P. Sousa's timeless classic was an early showpiece of Horowitz's during the years before his 12-year hiatus from the concert stage. He never played it in public after his return. So, I have endeavored to arrange the piece for solo piano, using as many of his devices as are possible for "normal humans", like you and me! There are octaves galore, of course, and the piccolo part in the high treble. The revised version, as of 8-1-16 has the piccolo part in the finale as well, ( ! ) and a few slightly easier but just as grand-sounding revisions.The key is the original of the march, and the piece is not easy, but is by no means wildly difficult. Some blank pages for proper pagination. Print two-sided for best results. Give it a listen, take a look at the left hand, and see if it's what you have been looking for as a showpiece of your own!
