On April 12, at the Library of Congress, the "President's Own" United States Marine Band will present a program of Stravinsky, Peter Lieberson, Gunther Schuller, and Elliott Carter, with Sibelius and Mozart added as a concession to more traditional tastes. None other than Oliver Knussen curated the concert, which is part of an LoC Knussen residency. The President's Own, which dates back to 1801 and experienced a golden age under John Philip Sousa, often plays modern fare; the repertory for its 2014 season is quite a bit more diverse than that of most conventional orchestras. Here's a video of the Marine String Quartet performing the Grosse Fuge.
