Themes from Poet And Peasant Overture

By Franz von Suppe  - Edited and  Arranged by Jim Mahaffey 

Grade 3 1/2 (Medium)    5 minutes 25 seconds

Franz von Suppe was a 19th century composer of light opera. Many of the overtures for his operas have become a standard part of our orchestral and wind band repertoire. The story behind “Poet and Peasant” is a classic tale of love. The overture sets the stage for all that
is to come throughout the opera. Jim Mahaffey brings the overture to life in an edition that is playable by developing concert bands.
