34-minute Photo, Music, Narrative
on Sousa Performance Practices
(Same as above slide/music show)
Commentary by John Bourgeois

There are 2 programs in this set: (1) MUSIC/NARRATIVE ONLY and (2) PHOTO/MUSIC'NARRATIVE. Each is based around Col John Bourgeois' descriptive discussion on proper performance practices with the music of John Philip Sousa.

Included with his coverage style, tempo, dynamics, de-orchestration, etc. are several of his own performances, many his own recent published revisions of Sousa's music: Included are complete performances of People Who Live in Glass Houses (4 movements), Semper Fidelis, Sabre and Spurs and Pathfinder of Panama.

The idea for this series is based on Ira Novoselsky's ongoing activity creating interesting, complete programs for traditional radio. When Bandworld Magazine went exclusively online in 2004, it became obvious that the Internet provides a way to get to a much broader audience. NOVOS was chosen in honor of Ira, who has contributed in many ways to the development of Bandworld Magazine and the American Band College Center for Research.
