Program Notes

Caesar's Triumphal March was apparently named after Julius Caesar, who personally witnessed a number of triumphal parades in his honor. In a spirit similar to the victory celebrations of ancient Rome, the enduring composition, published in 1898, is normally used at grand parades and gaudy spectacles.
