Program Notes

Based on Samuel Barber's Overture to the School for Scandal, wind band craftsman Richard Saucedo takes the distinctive and haunting lyrical theme and weaves it into a varied and rewarding concert setting.

- Program Note by publisher


Overture to The School for Scandal, Op. 5, is a concert overture by Samuel Barber. It is Barber's first work for full orchestra, composed in 1931 while he was completing his studies at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. The premiere was given on August 30, 1933, by the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Alexander Smallens. It lasts around 8 min. The title refers to the comedy The School for Scandal written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan and the overture was by Barber intended to reflect the spirit of the play - Program Note from Wikipedia
