Program Notes

March in F was written between 1809 and 1810 for "his Royal Highness Archduke Anton." It exists in two versions: with and without a trio. It is one of several ceremonial marches that Beethoven composed during this period.

Perhaps the greatest compliment that this music ever has received during its long life came from Paul Hindemith, who in 1946 used the delightful first theme as the basis for his second movement, Geschwindmarsch, in a larger orchestral work called Symphonia Serena, a fitting tribute to wonderfully simple music of timeless quality.
