The Wind in the Willows (music)

My son & I recently had the opportunity to see a symphonic winds concert by one of USM's bands. There were a number of selections, but both of us really liked a piece named The Wind and the Willows by Johann De Meij, which had several parts:

  • The River
  • Ratty and Mole
  • Mr. Toad (in which the trombones make an excellent impression of a toad's croak
  • The Return of Ulysses
The piece was quite beautiful, and the band members did an excellent job.
