  • Andrew Gonzales returns with his tribute to airports, which, believe it or not, he enjoys visiting!
  • Marches by Julius Fucik, original classical wind-band music by Ignace Pleyel, and a Japanese arrangement of “Bolero”—all of these will be heard on this edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion. But the primary focus will be the music of Ignace Joseph Pleyel. Born in Lower Austria, but eventually making his home in Paris, Pleyel was famous as a composer, music publisher, and piano builder. Pleyel lived from 1757 to 1831, clearly making him a composer of the classical period. But he is not as well known as other composers of this period like Haydn, who taught him and considered him a good student. After a visit to Italy, Pleyel moved to Stasbourg, France, to serve as an organist at the Strasbourg Cathedral. Eventually, Pleyel moved to Paris and became a music publisher and piano builder in addition to being a composer.
