Overture for Wind Band; Op. 24 by : Felix Mendelssohn : R. Mark Rogers
Felix Mendelssohn composed the first of his two works for wind band in 1824 at the age of 15. This work; originally entitled “Notturno”; was scored for eleven winds. It was later rescored for a much larger contingent and published as “Overture for Wind Band.” The work is in two main sections; an extended andante introduction and the main body of the overture marked allegro vivace. While not generally considered one of Mendelssohn's masterworks; the “Overture of Band” is nonetheless a valuable part of the band's early repertoire. This edition replaces the obsolete instruments with their modern versions and resolves many inconsistencies that plagued the original score.
