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
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.
