Festive Music for Organ, Winds, Brass & Percussion
Crown Imperial is one of Reference Recording’s all-time bestsellers, and an audiophile touchstone. Pomp & Pipes! is our first foray into the magnificent repertoire for organ and wind band. In the fourteen years since, we’ve had many requests for “more!”, and here it is, a program that’s at least as exhilarating.
This time, in addition to the renowned Dallas Winds and their music director Jerry Junkin, we have the services of Mary Preston, resident organist of the mighty Fisk concert instrument in the Meyerson Symphony Center. No one knows better than she the capabilities of the Fisk, and Mary Preston can make it sing and shout.
In addition to the royal coronation anthem Crown Imperial by William Walton, there are substantial pieces that are seldom heard in such full instrumentation. Richard Strauss contributes a stately Festival Intrada. There is a Canzon originally composed “in stereo” by Giovanni Gabrieli, a ceremonial brass Fanfare by Henri Tomasi, an unusual arrangement by Percy Grainger of the famous County Derry Air, Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral from Lohengrin by Richard Wagner who knew how to bring an audience to its feet! There is also Kammermusik #7 – a full concerto for organ and winds by Paul Hindemith – and Niagara Falls – a rousing, wild ride by popular American composer Michael Daugherty.
