The exhilarating conductor Kristjan Järvi exploits the style and panache of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra in a festive programme of works by the American John Philip Sousa, ‘The March King’. This follows the spectacular recording of works by Julius Fučík, made by Neeme Järvi, Kristjan’s father. Including such famous pieces as The Stars and Stripes Forever (National March of the USA), Semper Fidelis (Official March of the US Marine Corps), and The Liberty Bell (theme tune for Monty Python's Flying Circus), this album is a celebration in its own right, enhanced by brightly coloured sound captured in high-quality surround-sound.

****

“Looking for something foot-tapping and beguiling, and with a fund of tunes? This Chandos Sousa release could be the answer.”

Sunday Times

23rd April 2017

“Washington Post, The Liberty Bell and The Stars and Stripes Forever are all well known, but most of the music here proves a discovery. Sousa is much more than military bombast and brass-band oompah, and Jarvi clearly has an affection for this American Johann Strauss, who could write an affecting Nymphalin, for cello and orchestra, that ought to be better know. The familiar pieces are rollicking fun.”
