An Inside Look 19 luglio 2014
Di Erik O. Ronningen - Pubblicato su
Acquisto verificato
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.

As a career member of the Marine Band who served with the Erdman brothers, I would highly recommend this book as being "spot-on" in terms of authenticity and leaving the reader with a true sense of what it was like to be a musician in "The President's Own" under Col. Albert Schoepper. As a bonus, I learned a lot about my friends (the Erdmans) that I did not already know!

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.

This book brought back some marvelous memories of what was, certainly, the finest musical experience that I ever had. Absolutely anyone who plays in band, aspires to play professionally, admires superb musicianship will appreciate and enjoy this book. The Erdmans are a class act and this book more than demonstrates that fact!
