Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (June 23, 2018)

This edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion features music composed by Lt. Gen. Valery Khalilov, former commander of Russian military bands. Khalilov is a military band director having the rank of lieutenant general, but that should give us some idea of the respect the Russian military and government had for Valery Khalilov. He conducted the Russian Victory Day celebrations a record 14 times in Moscow's Red Square. He was born into a family of military band directors in Uzbekistan in 1952. He began composing at age 4 and graduated from the Moscow Military Musicians School at age 11. He became senior director of music of the Military Band Service of the Armed Forces of Russia in 2002. Unfortunately, he died in a plane crash in 2016.
