Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (January 14, 2017)

Georges Bizet was admitted to the Paris Conservatory at age 9, just before his 10th birthday. Unfortunately, he died in 1875 at age 37, producing too little music. To some extent, he is a one-hit wonder, known almost exclusively became of his opera Carmen. Today’s edition features a wind-band arrangement of the Carmen Suite, originally an orchestral arrangement of music from the opera. The performance will feature the Johan Willem Friso Royal Military Band of the Netherlands. The JWF regiment is the most senior of Dutch military forces. But we begin today’s show with the “Quality Plus March” by the American composer Fred A. Jewell.
