A prolific writer of theatrical music whose works ranged from incidental music for operettas to full operas, Franz von Suppe (1819 95) is perhaps best known as the composer of the overture from which this collection takes its name. According to "Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians, " "Suppe is the earliest Viennese composer of musical farces whose works still survive as viable stage scores (and popular overtures) . . . . His light, fluent style includes the ability to vary a phrase length or melodic and rhythmic figure in a personal and immediately effective way."
In addition to the title piece originally arranged for no less than 59 different combinations of instruments this compilation includes the "Vienna Jubilee Overture" and the overtures to three of the composer's most popular works: "Morning, ""Noon and Night in Vienna";" Beautiful Galatea"; and "Light Cavalry." Reprinted from authoritative editions and offered in a convenient single-volume format, these full scores will delight students, musicians, and admirers of the celebrated Austrian composer."
