Musician's or Publisher's Notes
This overture is
light-hearted and a flashy showcase piece for the brass quintet. Von Suppé is best remembered for his
overtures including the Light Cavalry,
Morning, Noon, and Night in Vienna, Jolly Robbers, and as performed today, The
Poet and Peasant overtures. The most
famous melody in the Poet and Peasant
Overture is recognizable as the tune of "The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You"
and "I've Been Working on the Railroad." CINCO
