With a rich history, the wind band is the ensemble of the future, eagerly embracing new composers, while respecting the trailblazers that came before. The wide range of literature presented in Naxos’ Wind Band Classics shows the medium's flexibility and potential for limitless tonal colours. This innovative ongoing series features some of the world's greatest wind ensembles, including ‘The President’s Own’ United States Marine Band, performing both new works and old standards.
