- Program Note from publisher

Lennon and McCartney wrote some of the most popular songs in the history of rock music, as one of the most influential songwriting partnerships of the twentieth century. Their appearance on the Ed Sullivan show in February, 1964, launched them onto the American pop music scene and pushed their music to the top of the charts, with over 40 “number one” single recordings. The Symphonic Beatles includes A Hard Day’s Night (1964), Yesterday (1966), I Want to Hold Your Hand (1963), Michelle (1965), and Hey Jude (1970).
