Program Notes

March Timpani was composed in 1880 for piano and appears for the first time in the current edition for symphonic band by Josh Byrd. Composed for the enjoyment of nineteenth century audiences, the work offers no dearth of material, presented here in slightly truncated form to obviate the barrage of repetitions offered music lovers in an age when silence abounded. Woven into the current edition are quotations of additional Wiggins tunes, namely, Virginia Polka and Oliver Galop. This historic edition remembers the legacy of a performer much celebrated during his time but long forgotten to posterity.
