Program Notes

All the sweep and grandeur of Wagner’s music encapsulated in a symphonic miniature for young band. Two of his noblest themes are joined in a concert piece that will inspire, yet not fatigue, young players.

- Program Note from publisher

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (The Mastersingers of Nuremburg) is an opera (later called a "music drama") written by Richard Wagner (1813-1883).

Wagner finished composing Die Meistersinger in 1865 while living at Villa Triebschen on Lake Lucerne, Switzerland, 22 years after he had made the first sketches. It was first performed June 21, 1868, in Munich, under the direction of the famous conductor, Hans von Bülow.
