To the Fore! Symphonic Band Music of Percy Grainger (1991)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Michigan State University Symphony Band; Genre: Classical

And now for something completely different: To the Fore!, wind band originals and arrangements (of Bach, Sousa, and Franck) by the 20th-century Australian-born piano virtuoso (surely the greatest pianist named Percy of all time). Even if you generally hate band music, how can you go wrong with tunes like ''The Gum- Suckers' March'' and ''Ye Banks and Braes o' Bonnie Doon''? You can't, that's how. B
