Down Longford Way
The eccentric Percy Grainger was well-known for his musical arrangements which ranged from works by other composers as well as arrangements of his own original and folk music settings. These arrangements form a body of
work which is perhaps unique in musical history.
Most of the works on this CD are taken from a series Grainger named Chosen Gems for Winds. Grainger had a musical mind of unusual breadth and vision, with interests spanning the ages from mediaeval music to the latest twentieth century developments and had the vision to see this context of the wind orchestra setting. It is likely that enlisting in the American Army as a bandsman at the outbreak of World War I, cemented his interest in wind band music, along with an awareness of Stokowski’s Bach transcriptions.
“Wind band players will find plenty to please them in this treasure chest. I suspect that many of these works will find their way into the repertoire, and hope that they will be given equally warm recorded sound and winning performances as here.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2008
