Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (September 29, 2018)

During the early part of the 20th century, Paul Lincke was to Berlin what Johann Strauss was to Vienna or Jacques Offenbach was to Paris; that is, a popular composer of operettas. He started his musical life as a high school bassoon player and played in the city band of Wittenberg, Germany. Lincke also learned how to play the tenor horn, drums, piano, and violin. In addition to a mysterious Russian popular song, today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion features a wind-band arrangement of Lincke’s popular work “The Glow Worm,” from his operatta “Lysistrata.”
