The Music of the Royal Swedish Navy
The Royal Swedish Navy Band directed by Andreas Hanson
This album presents a very comprehensive selection of the music associated with the Royal Swedish Navy and includes many wonderful marches, ceremonial and reflective music of different types as well, plus a number of Naval signals. The Royal Swedish Navy Band is one of the finest military bands in Europe and was until very recently under threat of being axed as part of Swedish Defence cuts. Fortunately for all, the Band has been saved and is shown at its best in this beautiful symphonic recording made in studio conditions in the wonderful acoustic of the historic wooden Admiralty Church (Ulrica Pia), Karlskrona, Sweden. The recording engineer was the legendary Tony Faulkner, with Mike Purton producing and editing. This outstanding recording demonstrates the importance of the Royal Swedish Navy Band’s preservation as a major Swedish national musical institution. And as a musical performance, will give enormous pleasure.
