  • February 15, 2017 It was the summer of 1992...

    From the first time I heard an organization play an arrangement of this selection, I have been hooked by the intermingling wind lines and canon-like bass drum hits. The Cadets' DCI show in the summer of 1992 brought about a change in my heart that made me want more...

    than anything to play the original and inspired me to practice even more. Arkansas All State Band in 1995 played this under Dr. Holsinger's baton and was nothing less than phenomenal. When you purchase this piece, know that it will require many hours of private individual practice and ensemble rehearsal, however, your audience will be floored by the precision this selection requires and will most likely allow your musicians to demonstrate accuracy far greater than what they've had opportunity to show. PLEASE OH PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING...Let the F Horns play at fortissimo at the end above the band. Anything less would be uncivilized. So let it be!

  • June 07, 2016 Marched to this in High School 20 years ago

    My high school marching band performed an arrangement of this piece in 1996. The music was challenging as was the drill, but this show was amazing. Not sure how it would play in a concert setting - works very well with visuals.

    To Tame the Perilous Skies is extremely complex, exciting, and in many ways beautiful. Through his music, David R. Holsinger depicts "two opposing forces colliding in battle," and he succeeds. A negative review would only come from a performer too inept to play this work of art, or an idiot...

    too ignorant to appreciate it. Buyer be warned though, this is in fact a Grade 6 piece; not Grade 5. You may have a lot more fun listening to it.

  • May 04, 2010 A very challenging but rewarding piece

    I have been playing music for a very long time in ensembles of varying skill levels, and this was the probably the most challenging piece I have ever played. I took us 4 months of rehearsals every day to get it ready to perform, and our audience was floored by...

    the fact that we pulled it off. Its hard, but a good ensemble will welcome the challenge

  • April 10, 2010 Save Yopur Money

    After more than 30 years in my local concert band I am handing in my resignation this week because of this music. It is the worst thing I have ever heard or played. It is nothing but cacophonous caterwauling. If there is a melody, we clarinets cannot hear it. We...

    are an excellent (Sudler Scroll) band but most of our players are unable to play this. I'd say it is a grade 5+ in difficulty. Our audience, which took many years to build, will walk out. No one in the band except the conductor likes it. You won't either. Save your money.
