This original work for military band was written by the great composer in honor of the young King, Ludwig II, who became Wagner's greatest patron. Col. Bourgeois' meticulously edited edition enables the modern concert band to play this masterwork as it was originally presented.  The brass section plays a prominent role, with separate parts for cornet, fluegelhorn and trumpet.

Col. Bourgeois' knowledge of performance practice in the original Sousa band is seen throughout this fine march.  The regimental trumpets and drums should stand behind the band for the most authentic musical effect.  It is truly gallant!

During World War I, Sousa was asked to compose an American wedding march; he fulfilled this request with this processional march. Subtitled Wedding March, Sousa dedicated the work to the American people. Stately and dignified, it is an excellent choice for academic processions or formal, ceremonial occasions.

"Parsifal", written in 1882, was the final opera by composer Richard Wagner (1813-1883). The prelude is a miniature masterpiece consisting of only 116 measures. The form of the prelude is similar to that of the classical three-movement overture and consists of four musical motives: the mystical realm of the Holy Grail; the Grail itself in the Dresden Amen; Faith, represented by the brass chorale; and the Agony of Amfortas. This transcription by John R. Bourgeois faithfully adheres to Wagner's intent both in key relationships and orchestration.

Jacques Offenbach was a product of the Paris Conservatory, becoming a professional cellist. However, today he is best known as the composer of light opera, including "Ballet Parisien," "La Belle Helene" and "Orpheus in the Underworld." This galop is a spirited and lighthearted work containing the origins of what we know today as the Marines' Hymn. This scoring by John Bourgeois is sure to become a standard.

This fine addition to the Bourgeois Editions is from Tchaikovsky's grand opera, The Maid of Orleans. Based on the story of Joan of Arc, the three movements can be performed together, or the first and last dances can stand alone in performance as well. Movements include: Dance of the Bohemians - a bright and lively display of virtuosity; Dance of the Pages - an elegant minuet scored for chamber winds; and Dance of the Actors - a fiery and robust finale ideal for any performance. It's a brilliant showcase for upper-level ensembles.

These dances display Tchaikovsky's remarkable grasp of symphonic writing and are among the very best of his dance sequences.  Carefully transcribed for band, they are taken from the opera "The Oprichnik."  The oprichniki were the personal bodyguards of Tsar Ivan the Terrible. The opening dance features various woodwind solo passages that display a hauntingly poignant Slavic flavor. The second dance begins vigorously and surges forward with ever-increasing accelerandi that lead to a fiery conclusion.
