Wind Band Literature takes a close look at the best of the wind band repertoire, from chamber music to huge symphonic works, from beginning band to professional level. It is not a comprehensive repertoire site, but rather a collection of resources compiled and created by conductor Andy Pease.  These are tools to share with students and colleagues to help enhance understanding of what makes the music we play so powerful and meaningful to us.

Highlights and things to come:

Marriage of Figaro Overture – W. A. Mozart, arr. Wendt

Figures in the Garden – Jonathan Dove

Serenade in C minor, K. 388 – W. A. Mozart

Petite Symphonie – Charles Gounod

Tetris – Lior Navok

Also, look for reporting from the Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago this December.

There is more in the works.  Stay tuned.

  5. Hey Andy My name is Elizabeth. I’m English I really like your blog, Just listened to Alligator Alley by Michael Daugherty. Awesome bassoon feature. I write a blog dedicated to wind band music as well. It’s more a site for people to discover wind band music than professionals and conductors to find music to play. I’m trying to research the history of wind band music compositions but I keep hitting dead ends. Do you happen to know anything about it or good places to go to find out? I have found books on history of wind bands themselves but not the actual music of the 20th century, the music that
    influenced Philip Sparke, Johan de Meij etc, where modern wind band music originated from. If you could point me in the right direction I’d be very grateful, if not then don’t worry. Do check my blog out if you can at windbandwonderland.wordpress.com, feedback is appreciated, it’s sill a new project. I look forward to hearing more great music from you.

  6. Slow morning here in Cleveland Tennessee and I stumbled onto your blog while I was looking for a recording of Esprit de Corps with what I considered the “correct” tempo for my wind lit kids to listen to. Good reading. You have a bunch of good stuff here. thanks for taking the time to do this.
