Tone Poem Tuesday

I think that Franz von Suppe is to this blog as cream of mushroom soup is to Mark Evanier’s. Whenever Evanier is really busy, he posts a picture of a can of cream of mushroom soup. I tend to do the same with a YouTube selection of an overture by Franz von Suppe.

So here’s von Suppe’s Jolly Robbers overture. I played this in high school in an arrangement that was wickedly difficult. Rehearsals of this were, at times, quite a lot less than fun…but I still love the piece.

Bear with, lots going on!

    I’m a sucker for this guy because he’s created a lot of music that I don’t know the titles of. Yet I hear them and say, “oh, THAT!”
