Product Description

Product Description

Americana An American Fantasy

The biggest and best of America's music from the National Anthem to Copland's stunning 'Fanfare for the Common Man' and some of Sousa's famous marches, including 'The Stars and Stripes Forever'. A program which evokes, through famous tunes and themes, the wide open spaces of the American landscape and the optimism of the American people.

From the Artist

Americana An American Fantasy

The grand old town of Como lies 'neath the resting hills, While its waters run on daily, in quiet rippling rills; And its sights and scenes are glorious - in fact, are simply grand, But there's one thing does excel all else - it's the music of the band.

From a newspaper in Wayne County, Pennsylvania, 1898

Local pride in the town band ran high in America a hundred years or more ago: and still does in many places today. John Philip Sousa's professional band of the last few years of the nineteenth century couldn't have existed without a huge network of amateur bands and music making throughout the smaller towns and cities of America. Indeed, there has been music-making in America since the pioneering days and it has led, via a combination of commercial development and some truly great academic institutions, to a superb repertoire of memorable and important tunes and songs, and some of the world's greatest composers.
