Program Notes

A Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna belongs to a musical genre which preceded the operetta -- a humorous play, with song. The overture to such a production never related to the story line. Its function was to get the attention of the audience, to quiet the house and to set the scene for the entertainment. Even at the age of twenty-four, Suppé had a feel for how to attract the audience with a pleasant, unpretentious bit of fluff.

The original stage comedy died the natural death of a mediocre entertainment whose form is no longer in vogue, but its charming overture lives on. Henry Fillmore arranged Morning, Noon, and Night in Vienna for concert band in 1922, and it has since become one of the very popular and enduring traditional overtures in the concert band’s repertoire.

The overture Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna was one of over twenty scores that Franz von Suppé composed for the theater in the years between 1843 and 1845. During this time he was in the employment of several different theaters in and around his adopted home, Vienna, where he served as kapellmeister (music director or conductor) for the next seventeen years. He was a prolific writer, composing over 1134 theater-related works.
