Program Notes

This dramatic march opens with a theme from Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 14 (Allegro Eroico section). Like Huffine's Them Basses March, March Grandioso has a minimum of important simultaneous melodic lines and can thus be performed with very few instruments. When played at a football half-time show or during a parade by a band with 200 to 300 performers (such as the University of Texas Longhorn Marching Band), the powerful unison strains can be heard for a considerable distance. This may explain Grandioso's current popularity in Great Britain and Western Europe.
