In his compositional craft, Verdi was not reluctant to display some of his most powerful and dramatic music in his overtures, preludes and ballet scenes.  His preludes before individual acts of the operas were shorter than his overtures, but they do foreshadow the mood and intense drama of the ensuing scenes.  Paired together in this transcription are preludes from Ernani and Atilla, his fifth and ninth of 26 operatic works.

The Valley of Darkness . . . eerie . . . overgrown . . . unchartered . . . an echo of an era long past. The music tells the story of an expedition into this heretofore unnoticed valley in an unsettled land. As several imaginary scenes are portrayed, a sense of dread and foreboding permeates as the natives of the valley detect the presence of trespassers upon their land. When the end of the sojourn looms, the speed and urgency of the adventurers increases, and escape through the narrow crevice at the end of the valley is now  within their reach. However, the inhabitants of the Valley of Darkness think otherwise . . .

Vampires in the Attic is a creepy and energetic work for young band that emphasizes musicality and ensemble playing. The slow beginning sets a creepy atmosphere as the dark recesses of the attic are explored. As the pace increases, the trumpet section is featured as if vampires are chased around the attic, ending with the vampires returning to their hiding spots as the opening material is revisited, slowing to a delightfully eerie conclusion.

After a sweeping introduction, the expressive folk melody appears in the clarinets, first in two voices then expanding to the entire choir. The variations offer contrasts of brass and woodwind choirs that include a hornpipe style march.  An expressive tutti chorale leads to a fanfare conclusion over a melodic variation. (5 minutes 10 seconds)

Few concert band works boast the swagger and panache of this exhilarating composition! A dramatic fanfare moves into a rollicking 6/8 journey, with the flavor of a Celtic jig. After a slower more expressive section, there is a short fughetta, followed by the melody stated with increasing intensity to a vibrant finish.

This attractive work is full of rhythmic variety, as well as changes of orchestration and instrumentation. The catchy march melody is introduced by the clarinets and cornets, after which it goes through a series of creative transformations (or variations) in which the same musical ideas are presented in a variety of different musical formats and styles.

A truly powerful setting that is worthy of this famous hymn that uses an impressive set of three variations. It opens with a slow, legato presentation of the melody stated by solo trumpet followed by the first lively variation, driven by a strong rhythmic accompaniment.  The second variation features an alto saxophone solo that builds and alternates between woodwind and brass choirs before closing with a majestic fanfare and the full ensemble driving to a jubilant conclusion. Extremely uplifting!

Commissioned and premiered in 1987 by the U.S. Army Field Band, this was Claude T. Smith's last completed work, written to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution. Based on the hymn tune Resignation (How Firm a Foundation), this is a mature work by the celebrated American bandmaster, displaying the technical capabilities of each section of the wind band. A bold concert statement and a fitting commentary on the founding fathers whose faith and determination launched the great American Experiment.

Franz von Suppe was born Francesco Ezechiele Ermenegildo Cavaliere di Suppe-Demielli on April 18, 1819. His father and grandfather were both civil servants, and he was distant relative of Gaetano Donizetti. He displayed his talent at an early age when he began to compose music as a young boy, but despite this he received no encouragement from his father to pursue a career in music. He went on to compose many operas, most of which remain relatively obscure; however, the overtures to "Poet and Peasant" and "Light Cavalry" are well known and have been quite popular in transcriptions for concert band and widely used in movies and cartoons. Highly exuberant and spirited, Vienna Jubilation Overture contains all the thrilling elements that are evident in all of von Suppe's remarkable overtures.
