    Nice to hear some marches unfamiliar to those of us over here. I especially appreciated the soaring sound those oval baritones get at points in the music.

    Agreed! Regarding "soaring" from the baritones, I think that's where those oval horns really shine. Not because they are oval, but I think they are more conical and open than a British baritone. It is much easier to get that soaring sound when your air can move through so freely. So I'm guessing the writing within these compositions and arrangements is geared to take advantage of those particular instruments. Whatever the reason, the result is really neat and uplifting!

  9. I wanted to introduce Western musicians with the great composer who had a tremendous influence on Soviet military music of the 20th century.

  10. Here is an interesting version of the "March of the guards mortar" in the performance of the Brandt Brass.
    The euphonium plays the famous song "Katyusha".
