Orchestral Transcriptions

Japan's reverence for great music is evident in these meticulous transcriptions of significant European literature. A true understanding of the "Wind Orchestra" format is revealed in the brilliant clarity of these works for both large and small ensembles. Appropriate yet challenging voicings compel the ensemble towards a deeper understanding of the concepts of both blend and independence. This series was designed specifically for exposition of a band's highest musical attainment.
