A CD from the Czech Republic's SUPRAPHON label featuring symphonic versions of sixteen marches by Czech composers of the nineteenth- and twentieth centuries, performed with style by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Václav Neumann.
Included here is not only a block of marches by the legendary Julius Fučik (1872-1916) - a figure well-known to connoisseurs of "K. u. K." military band music - but also pieces by other, comparatively unknown Czech composers who likewise cut their musical teeth in Habsburg military service.
An interesting compilation that includes marches from the oft-neglected interwar period of the Czechoslovak Republic, this album is accompanied by sixteen-page booklet with informative notes in English, German, French and Czech.
