      Grainger: Lincolnshire Posy (14:52)

      United States Marine Band / Gerard Schwarz

      Few wind ensembles have earned such international acclaim as the United States Marine Band, virtuosos who here perform an excitingly varied program directed by the award-winning conductor of the Seattle Symphony, Gerard Schwarz. Established classics such as Frederick Fennell’s edition of Percy Grainger’s Lincolnshire Posy sit alongside works by Paul Creston, Aaron Copland and Samuel Barber. Schwarz contributes his own recent composition Above and Beyond, written specifically for this band in recognition of its remarkable musicianship.
