Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (July 22, 2017)

Seymon Tchernetsky was born in Odessa, Russia, in 1881 and died in Moscow in 1950. He became a military bandsman in 1900, playing the trombone. By 1902, he was the bandmaster of the military bands in Odessa. In 1911, he went to St. Petersburg, where he studied under Glasunov and Rimsky-Korsakov. By 1924, he was chief inspector of the Soviet Army and Navy bands. He remained in that position until 1949, the year before he died. He composed and lead the music for the big celebration for the victory of the Soviet Union over the Nazis at the end of World War II. Today, Brass, Reeds, and Percussion begins with one of Tchernetsky’s more popular compositions—the “March of the Tank Soldiers.”
