Description

Buster Keaton’s 1926 film “The General” tells the tale of a locomotive chase through the deep south during the Civil War. Robert W. Smith’s popular band and orchestra piece “The Great Locomotive Chase” is based on the same historic event. Ion Concert Media brings these two works together in its engaging film edit. A great addition for any school or community ensemble concert program.

  1. 5 out of 5

    This piece was a lot of fun. The music was very simple for my college band, so we could really hone in on the nuances of music-film synchronization. This was a real audience-pleaser.

  2. 5 out of 5

    Well done.
