Symphonic Dances is an energetic and delightful album of orchestral masterpieces, brought to you by The United States Marine Band. The album begins with the beautiful four-part Suite from Pineapple Poll, a ballet Sir Charles Mackerras created based on works by Sir Arthur Sullivan of Gilbert and Sullivan fame. The ballet suite is followed by Le Valse, a dark but lovely piece composed by Maurice Ravel as a tribute to the Viennese waltz tradition. The Marine band then tackles the big symphonic sound of Leonard Bernstein with Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, and the medley of songs flows with great style and flair throughout, managing to perfectly capture the story the musical tells. Also featuring Danse Funambulesque and Dances from Estancia, Symphonic Dances pulls out all the stops to bring you exciting symphonic music that can be enjoyed anytime!
