Description
This attractive overture by Saverio Mercadante is an important example of original composition for band from the 19th century. Mercadante was inspired by themes by Vincenzo Bellini (1801-1835) from his most famous operas such as Norma and La Sonnambula. Mercadante’s method of composing was similar to Verdi’s, who wrote overtures using themes from his operas (such as the overtures to Nabucco and La Forza del Destino, for example). The result is a fascinating alternation of lyric and dramatic moments, ending in a fast and enthralling finale. This arrangement offers contemporary concert bands access to a composition otherwise forgotten due to itsobsolete instrumentation, which differs dramatically from the present one. The original instrumentation included the following instruments: Flute, Eb Clarinet, Bb Clarinets 1-2-3-4-, Eb Horns 1-2-3-4, Bb Flugel Horn, Bb Cornets 1-2, Trombones 1-2-3, Bb Bass Flugel Horn, Bb Tenor Horn, “Pelittoni” (Contrabass Flugel Horns) 1-2, Snare Drum, Bass Drum, Cymbals. The adaptation to a contemporary instrumentation has been accomplished by taking into account the original ideas, so as to maintain the authentic character of the composition.
