A chance to express Sousas lyricism at the piano

Piano transcriptions of Sousa marches sometimes work and sometimes dont; this one succeeds, in an interesting way. The Manhattan Beach March is a diversion for Sousa in more ways than one; it was written to celebrate the opening of this famous oceanside park, and as an occasional piece, has far less of the high martial drama of Sousas more well-known marches. (There is, for example, no "dogfight" section leading into the final strain, and no stinger on the end of the piece.) Some editorial additions to Sousas music use fade in/fade out dynamics to create the impression of the ebbing and flowing of the waves. While such dynamics are not indicated in this version, concert band versions that suggest such dynamic variations can easily be found online, and I find that incorporating these into the piano version helps create variety and contrast, which is one of the challenges of conveying band or orchestral music in a piano transcription. This piano transcription also allows the performer to highlight some of the more piquant and wistful harmonies that Sousa employs, particularly in the trio strain.
