Description

The march is one of the oldest styles of music ever composed and of course, it was adopted by many composers to inject energy, rhythm and colour into their operas. Mozart was inspired to compose the march by his hero, Handel and the latter is credited with the traditional, British Grenadiers. Berlioz’s grand opening of The Damnation of Faust features his Marches Hongroise depicting the approach of the Hungarian Army and Johann Strauss Senior’s Redetzky March celebrated military victory. As well as these, this Collection features American composer, Sousa and England’s Edward Elgar with two of the famous Pomp & Circumstance marches. To finish, Andrea has invited his friends from the Pipes & Drums of 1st Battalion, Scots Guards to perform at Lucca’s Teatro del Giglio.
