Program Notes

During the French Revolution, and in the period immediately following, the many outdoor ceremonial functions led to a concentration of works for band. Many of these were in the key of F because of the use of natural trumpets in that key. The instrumentation included the serpent in addition to the familiar instruments. Written in 1794, the symphony is cast in a single movement and suggests the form of an overture. It was found in the archives of the National Library of Paris, and rescored for modern symphonic band by William A. Schaefer.
