In the introduction to this march Holzmann wrote:
"Dedicated to Herbert Kaufman, Esq., whose exhilarating book entitled The Winning Fight inspired me to write this March."
The Winning Fight is yet another great stirring Holzmann march two step in AABBCDCDC form with a 4-bar introduction whereby the A/B strains are each of 16 bars and written in G-major whilst the C-strain is of 48 bars in C-major. The cover of the original sheet music is a lightly coloured sepia reproduction of a battle scene where the presumably brave Yankee soldiers at the ramparts are firing at an unseen enemy and are obviously on the winning side. In this transcription for recorder ensemble the melodies are shared by the treble, who has some bar-counting to do, and 1st tenor. A very enjoyable piece.
The Winning Fight was published by Leo Feist, New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
