Every genre of music has its “one-hit wonders”—composers or performers who are forever known for just one piece of music. In classical music, two composers come to mind: Johann Pachebel for his “Canon in D” and Emil Reznecek for his overture to “Donna Diana”. I am certain that they have written a lot more music, but we only know them for the above-mentioned works. The same is true in wind band music. The composer in question is one, Charles E. Duble. His one big hit is his circus march, “Bravura”. One of his lesser known marches is “Wizard of the West.” It was originally written in 1908 and dedicated “To A. R. Wheeler, Musical Director, Howes Great London Shows.” To this day, however, this occidental expert remains a mystery because he has not come out from behind the curtains. However, the western wizard does make his presence known in the euphonium section—especially in the trio.
