Program Notes

The crisp, jaunty march style is immediately apparent in this delightful orchestral transcription. Light and lively, listeners will hear the hustle and bustle of the West End section of London in the tuneful first strain. A colorful selection by the composer dubbed "the uncrowned king of light music."

This first-ever transcription of the opening "march" takes the listener to the hustle and bustle of London's west-end shopping district. Dubbed the "uncrowned king of light music," Coates' instantly recognizable scoring in a march-style is a certain winner for Douglas Wagner's new concert band setting.
