Synopsis: For a half century, The Journal of Band Research has been at the forefront of our understanding of wind band repertoire, attracting some of the most important wind band composers and conductors to write about the great works of the wind band canon. This book is a compilation of many of the great articles that have been published over the past 50 years.
From 1964, Herbert W. Fred discusses Percy Grainger s Music for Wind Band and Vincent Persichetti reflects on his own Symphony No. 6 for Band. From 1971, David Whitwell opens the door into The Enigma of Copland s Emblems. And in 1973,
Karel Husa writes Apotheosis of the Earth: Some Thoughts.
Other articles include Thematic Derivations in the Holst First Suite in E Flat by Charles Gallagher (1965), Hammersmith and the Two Worlds of Gustav Holst by Robert Cantrick (1977), and Analysis: Winds of Nagual by Michael Colgrass by James Mathes (1987).
All told, the 29 articles in this anthology paint a remarkable picture of the wind band world at its best and provide remarkable insights into some of the timeless masterpieces of the wind band repertoire.
