Descrizione del libro

6 novembre 2013
Guaranteed Notes is a behind-the-scenes journey into the world of the famous and venerable Marine Band, “The President’s Own.” Fredric Erdman, as the band’s premier cornet soloist, provides the drumbeat throughout this journey, with Timothy Erdman as narrator. This book is filled with dramatic, delightful and humorous true stories as told by the three Erdman brothers (and others) serving simultaneously in the President’s band, two of whom served as star soloists under a very demanding, sometimes unreasonable and subsequently legendary leader, Colonel Albert F. Schoepper, pronounced SHOW-purr (1955-1972). The many fearful and sometimes electrifying moments of those days, as well as the fulfilling and often exhilarating moments of pride and joy, reveal the pressure of accomplishing a mission—followed by the elation of a mission accomplished—in what has been acclaimed as the world’s greatest symphonic concert band.

Descrizione prodotto

L'autore

After 30 years of service and performing as its premier cornet soloist, Fredric Erdman retired from the United States Marine Band, "The President's Own," and currently resides in Arlington, VA. James Erdman retired after 20 years with the Marine Band, serving as the band's principle trombonist and soloist. He presently teaches trombone as a member of the music faculty of Lebanon Valley College and makes his home in Mt. Gretna, Pennsylvania. The book's narrator, Timothy Erdman, spent nine years in the Marine Band alongside his brothers before leaving to pursue a career in business writing. A resident of Lebanon, Pennsylvania and a former principal trumpet with The Harrisburg Syimphony, he is a free lance writer; teaches public speaking and writing at the Reading Area Community College; and conducts the Lebanon Community Concert Band.

Under the John Phillip Susa baton of Colonel Albert F. Schoepper, this is the recounting of thirty of the best years of The United States Marine Band, “The Presidents Own.” Told from the perspective (eyes, cornets, and trombone) of the three Erdman brothers, Fred, Jim, and Tim, it is an inside look of the daily activities, concerts and tours, and the nearly impossible demand for perfection by its conductor on his bandsmen for “Guaranteed Notes;” no missed, chipped, or wrong notes in any performance.

At no other time in the history of the Marine Band has it ever had three family members performing concurrently. Their stories, wonderfully arranged and narrated by brother Tim, cornet, into the harmony, and occasional disharmony that are the individual personalities of performers in crowded stress-filled circumstances, takes the reader from hometown Lebanon, Pennsylvania, thirty treasured years in the Marine Band, full circle again to retirement.

Join the Erdman brothers and the band during rehearsals, performances in the White House, funerals at Arlington Cemetery, Parades and Tattoos at Eighth and I, concerts at the Capital plaza and on the barge at Watergate. Feel the biting cold wind performing at presidential inaugurations, and the joy of playing foxtrots at the evening balls. Tax your will, embrasure, and endurance to the limit living aboard buses and questionable hotel accommodations during the annual, grinding sixty-three-day, sixty-three-city national tour of America performing two concerts a day without letup. And you will begin to understand why this, The United States Marine Band, “The Presidents Own” is acknowledged by its peers as the best military symphonic concert band in the world.

"Guaranteed Notes: Memoirs of the Three Erdman Brothers and The United States Marine Band, 'The President's Own'," is a must read for every college-age aspiring professional musician. Taken from its title, the book opens with an incident during one of the band's annual 9-week, 2 concerts a day, 7 days a week cross country tours. Colonel Albert F. Schoepper, Leader of the Marine Band (1955-1972), issued a proclamation: "You must guarantee me ALL the notes," no missed, chipped, or wrong notes are tolerated. The discipline and perfection of performance demanded by Col Schoepper was felt by every member of the band and especially by the band's premier soloists Fredric and James Erdman, the book's authors.

Through direct quotes and stories of performances and people in the U.S. Marine Band, the book is constructed in ways that give the reader what it is actually like to be a professional musician. The pressures of practicing, rehearsing, performing, and recording every day are described in full detail by Fredric Erdman who as featured cornet soloist played 537 times in ten of the band's 22 tours, and as first chair solo cornet, performed 838 times with the band over a thirty-year career. "It takes the right kind of personality with an abundance of confidence, endurance, and discipline to produce those 'Guaranteed Notes'."

Karl Glenn, USMB (1959-63)

A wonderful book depicting the lives of musicians who had a love amd a discipline for the art of music, eapecially with the Marine Band during its greatest time. The band sound and texhnique was litterally untouchable and still is. The Erdmans were highly responsible for that excellence with the style and incredible musicianship they had. Along with playimg along a band of this type the stories carry a fine deacription of what actually accurred for the band to comtinue in this fashion.
