Product Description

Product Description

Recorded at RAF Northolt, UK, 24-29 February 2012.

John Philip Sousa was a legend in his lifetime and the personification of turn-of-the-century America's energy and ambition. His band was therefore the automatic choice for great national events such as the presidential inauguration of James Garfield in 1881. The Central Band of the RAF is one of the foremost military bands in the United Kingdom, and the first outside the USA to be awarded the 'John Philip Sousa Citation for Musical Excellence'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting repertoire 5 Feb 2014
By Rimsky
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the first of, presumably, a series of recordings by the RAF Central Band, which plays superbly well. The repertoire is interesting, but by the time you have listened to volumes 1-12, you will know what to expect! It is clear from this series of recordings, that Sousa never developed as a composer: his late music could have been written 40 years earlier!
The recording itself is this issue's big drawback, sounding constricted and not allowing the music or band sound to expand/breathe. It is bass heavy, and lacking in ambience, presumably owing to the recording venue?

5.0 out of 5 stars Military music par excellence. 7 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My favourite military band is involved but trying to be impartial - this is an excellent CD of Sousa music of which this CD is thirteen in the series of expected twenty-five. It augurs well for the remainder.
BUT - I preordered this CD at about the same time as my friend in Lancashire, the web page showing release date of 3rd February. I was later advised of expected delivery date to me of 7th Feb. I received the CD on the 6th. Imagine my surprise and a little annoyance when speaking to my friend to learn he had delivery of the CD on Sunday, 2nd February, one day before the release date. So my friends at Amazon please accept a slap on the wrist, a blip no doubt having experienced excellent service from you in the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collect the Set 23 Mar 2014

As a big John Phillip Sousa fan, I am collecting the complete set by Naxos. This CD is as good as the first 12.
5.0 out of 5 stars Sousa Compositions 21 Feb 2014
By William E. O'Hara - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very good series of Sousa's compositions. The interpretations are the best. Not only do you hear marches, but many more of Sousa's lesser known compositions are heard here.
