As early as the 17th century in the days of Fleet Admiral Michiel de Ruyter, one of the initiators of the Netherlands Marine Corps, music has played an important role in the navy.Transforming from ships’ bands and ensembles into a land-based full sized orchestra ashore, the Marine Band turned into the all-round musical ambassador of the Royal Netherlands Navy.

From military marching formation, intimate accompanying ensemble, extended big band and classic symphonic wind band to a stunning cover band; no music style is absent from the enormous repertoire. The Marine Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy developed an appreciation for Russia and the music of her great composers. As part of the celebrations of 300 years Peter the Great and the jubilee of the city, concert tours to St. Petersburg were made in 1997 and 2003. In 2009 the branch of the Hermitage in Amsterdam was opened with a concert and attended by Queen Beatrix and President Medvedev.

Press reviews

Luister 5 out of 5

Luister 10 Award

editorial – eurowinds

(…) brillanten Interpretationen (…) Alles im allen kann und darf es daher nicht verwundern, dass hier einer der herausragendsten Tonträger mit originaler Bläsermuziek vorliegt.

Stereophile Record To Die For

This is a delight to the ear. (…)This is an album I can enjoy almost every day—especially when I’m able to turn up the volume.

Audiophile Mag Italy 5 out of 5

Performance: This is a tremendous album (…) marvellously entertaining Russian music (…) in state-of-the-art sound. (…) the tempi always seem exactly right and the playing is wonderfully alive (…) there is a real sense of enjoyment.
Sound: (…) there is exceptional depth (…) Clarity and definition are exemplary, so even in climaxes you can hear every line, without any loss of weight (…) the overall impression is one of exceptional brilliance.

De Gelderlander 5 out of 5

Marinierskapel levert kwaliteit van de bovenste plank (…) Tien laat zijn musici flexibel en alert spelen. Daarbij staat een energieke en toch ook weer lyrische uitstraling voorop.

Opus Klassiek

(…) De veelal felle klankkleuren, de scherp gestoken ritmische profilering en de opvallend geraffineerde variaties tussen soli (een goede vondst om daarvoor leden van het KCO uit te nodigen) en tutti zorgen voor de klankbetovering die alleen door een topensemble als dit kan worden gerealiseerd. Dan is er de schitterende opname die in niet geringe mate bijdraagt aan dit luxueuze klankfestijn. In dit genre is daarom onvoorwaardelijk sprake van een topproductie. (…)

Nederlands Dagblad

Roel Sikkema
(…) De Marinierskapel is een uitstekend spelend orkest dat zich op deze cd heeft
omringd met een aantal solisten van topklasse. Dat maakt het beluisteren van deze cd
tot een aangename belevenis.

Klassieke Zaken – Aangenaam Klassiek

Floris de Wever
(…) Het orkest weet een aantal fenomenale solisten heel mooi te begeleiden. (…) Dit is
blaasmuziek op het allerhoogste niveau (…)

BBC Music Magazine [5 stars] 5 out of 5

Astonishing clarity of sound and texture thanks both to a crack ensemble and the superb recording. Brilliant, effervescent discoveries.
