Marine Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy

Arjan Tien

As early as the 17th century in the days of Fleet Admiral Michiel de Ruyter, one of the initiators of the Netherlands Marine Corps, music has played an important role in the navy.Transforming from ships’ bands and ensembles into a land-based full sized orchestra ashore, the Marine Band turned into the all-round musical ambassador of the Royal Netherlands Navy.

From military marching formation, intimate accompanying ensemble, extended big band and classic symphonic wind band to a stunning cover band; no music style is absent from the enormous repertoire. The Marine Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy developed an appreciation for Russia and the music of her great composers. As part of the celebrations of 300 years Peter the Great and the jubilee of the city, concert tours to St. Petersburg were made in 1997 and 2003. In 2009 the branch of the Hermitage in Amsterdam was opened with a concert and attended by Queen Beatrix and President Medvedev.

Marine Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy

The Marine Band, based in Rotterdam, was founded in 1945 and is in fact the continuation of the pre-war Regimental Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy, founded by King Willem III in 1864.

The 54 professional musicians, combined with the artistic and creative abilities of their conductors, have substantially contributed to the development and appreciation of military music in the Netherlands. With a characteristic 'Sound & Drive', the band has won the hearts of a large public. It is the musical visiting card of the Royal Netherlands Navy. The band's principal responsibility is the musical accompaniment of military ceremonial events for the Royal Family, Government and the Royal Netherlands Navy. Traditional highlights are the annual opening of the States General (Prinsjesdag), The Netherlands Military Tattoo, Remembrance Day and the Marine Corps concerts.

(...) brillanten Interpretationen (...) Alles im allen kann und darf es daher nicht verwundern, dass hier einer der herausragendsten Tonträger mit originaler Bläsermuziek vorliegt.

Werner Probst

    Stereophile Record To Die For

This is a delight to the ear. (...)This is an album I can enjoy almost every day—especially when I'm able to turn up the volume.

    Audiophile Mag Italy -

Performance: This is a tremendous album (...) marvellously entertaining Russian music (...) in state-of-the-art sound. (...) the tempi always seem exactly right and the playing is wonderfully alive (...) there is a real sense of enjoyment. Sound: (...) there is exceptional depth (...) Clarity and definition are exemplary, so even in climaxes you can hear every line, without any loss of weight (...) the overall impression is one of exceptional brilliance.

    De Gelderlander -

Marinierskapel levert kwaliteit van de bovenste plank (...) Tien laat zijn musici flexibel en alert spelen. Daarbij staat een energieke en toch ook weer lyrische uitstraling voorop.

    Opus Klassiek

(...) De veelal felle klankkleuren, de scherp gestoken ritmische profilering en de opvallend geraffineerde variaties tussen soli (een goede vondst om daarvoor leden van het KCO uit te nodigen) en tutti zorgen voor de klankbetovering die alleen door een topensemble als dit kan worden gerealiseerd. Dan is er de schitterende opname die in niet geringe mate bijdraagt aan dit luxueuze klankfestijn. In dit genre is daarom onvoorwaardelijk sprake van een topproductie. (...)

Aart van der Wal

    Nederlands Dagblad

Roel Sikkema (...) De Marinierskapel is een uitstekend spelend orkest dat zich op deze cd heeft omringd met een aantal solisten van topklasse. Dat maakt het beluisteren van deze cd tot een aangename belevenis.

    Klassieke Zaken - Aangenaam Klassiek

Floris de Wever (...) Het orkest weet een aantal fenomenale solisten heel mooi te begeleiden. (...) Dit is blaasmuziek op het allerhoogste niveau (...)

    BBC Music Magazine [5 stars] -

Astonishing clarity of sound and texture thanks both to a crack ensemble and the superb recording. Brilliant, effervescent discoveries.
