Chess – The Musical

It doesn’t run anymore since the Cold War but it will always be my favourite. The first two clips are some of the more poignant songs from the musical (the other being Anthem). The third clip is a medley of tunes from Chess arranged by the much loved Johan de Meij who really puts “symphonic” into band music and who writes parts that delight the bassoonists.
