Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (November 26, 2016)

Today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion will feature two marches written to honor electricity, both written by Italian composers. In addition, you’ll hear music by Italian opera composers and march composed by Czech march king. And we’ll hear a percussion-only arrangement of the Pachelbel’s “Canon in D.” We’ll begin today’s show with the overture to Giuseppe Verdi’s 1849 opera Luisa Miller. It’s a story of two men competing for the love of one woman, along with political intrigue and a murder-suicide.
