Program Notes

All the fun and excitement you'd expect in an old Italian overture: rapid-fire rhythms, rushing series of quickly contrasting dynamics and whirlwinds of brilliant melodies. A showpiece that will leave you and your audience breathless!

- Program Note from publisher

It is rare that work originally composed for the accordion would be transcribed for concert band. However, that is the case with Trieste Overture by Petro Deiro. Deiro was born in Italy and immigrated to the United States to work in a coal mine and play accordion. Trieste Overture, arranged by Larry Daehn, is a delightful short work that draws on the styles of overture wiritng by Rossini, Offenbach and Karl King.
