However, the matter is not as simple as the title of the CD announces: “Easy Classical Music for Wind Orchestra” probably also contains works for the basic level, but the arc spans all the way up to level 5! In this sampler, the British publisher Studio Music has collected arrangements by Handel, Faure, Puccini, Purcell, von Weber, Holst, Debussy, Bach, Borodin, Mozart and Saint-Saens and combined them with modern works by Martin Ellerby, Nigel Clarke, James Last, Rodney Newton, Wilfred Josephs, Rob Wiffin and Bruce Fraser.

All in all, this makes for a well-rounded experience, just like a CD. There are numerous sound samples, several complete CE recordings, scores and background information at your disposal.
