Program Notes

This rather obscure work for chamber orchestra by Elgar is a real gem in a musical sense. Chanson de Matin is a melodious, almost nostalgic, little work, in a warm and sonorous orchestral texture. The warm and noble original orchestra score has been the basis for the concert band arrangement, and this guarantees that the original character will be preserved throughout the work.

- Program Note from publisher

Chanson de Matin (Morning Song), Op. 15, No. 2, is a musical work composed by Edward Elgar for violin and piano, and later orchestrated by the composer. Its first publication was in 1899, though it is thought that it was almost certainly written in 1889 or 1890.
