Program Notes

A work written to make laugh amuse and dream. Horns, sirens, whistles and a long etc. [sic] of instruments of humorous character, make it possible for Comic Overture to take us to the true fairs and festivals of carnival where merriment and laughter taker over atmosphere. And then, a contrasting second section inviting us to dream of that heaven we all long for, happiness.
