Marching through Sweden

(4 out of 5 stars)
"When searching for marches, you might not look to Sweden first, but the Royal Swedish Air Force Band does a creditable and energetic job with this compilation of march tunes. Twenty different composers are represented, many of them unfamiliar to the listener whose march experience begins and ends with Sousa, but all are excellent representatives of the march genre. Most pieces seem like straightforward renditions of the original scores, but I had a slight quibble with a quirky arrangement of Herbert's "March of the Toys". That should not dissuade any listener; this is an excellent cross-section of march selections from Schubert's "March Militaire" to more modern composers like Gershwin and Coates."
