Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (April 1, 2017)

The composer of our opening march is Heinz Herrmannsdorfer, born in Kempten, Germany, in 1923. He first learned how to play the piano, and then the trombone became his primary instrument. After WW II, he played in German nightclubs that catered to the American occupying forces. Eventually, he played with German big bands and is one of the original Ergerlander Musikanten musicians, made famous by their leader Ernest Mosch. Today’s edition opens with the Austrian band Blasmusik Lesanka performing Heinz Hermannsdorfer’s most popular composition: “Montana March.”
