Berlioz – Overture to Beatrice and Benedict – 7’38"

The French composer Hector Berlioz wrote a number of overtures, many of which have become popular concert items. They include overtures intended to introduce operas as well as independent concert overtures.  Overture to Beatrice and Benedict was composed in 1862.

Schumann – Julius Caesar Overture – 9’

The German composer Schumann wrote almost exclusively for the piano until 1840, when he burst into song composition around the time of his marriage to Clara Wieck.

Handel – Overture to Julius Caesar in Egypt – 3’55"

Giulio Cesare in Egitto (Julius Caesar in Egypt, HWV 17), commonly known simply as Giulio Cesare, is an Italian opera in three acts written for the Royal Academy of Music by George Frideric Handel in 1724. The libretto was written by Nicola Francesco Haym.

Rossini – Variations for Clarinet and Orchestra – 12’24"

Rossini’s Introduction, Theme and Variations is a standard in the Clarinet repertoire.  While there is an existing version for orchestra and Clarinet, it is both rare and expensive — a dangerous combination!  This transcription, for classical orchestra, is stylistically appropriate and is based on Rossini’s own orchestration.
