Morning, Noon, and Night in Vienna for flute octet
Although he composed numerous operettas, farces, ballets, and other stage works, Franz von Suppé is best known for his overtures. The most famous, “Poet and Peasant” and “Light Cavalry” have been used for numerous movies, cartoons and commercials.
“Morning, Noon, and Night” may not be the most recognizable, but this classic overture is welcome to our flute choir repertoire. In addition to having high appeal because of its delightful melody, this arrangement is accessible to many ensembles in both instructional and professional settings because it is edited for length and scored for varying levels of abilities.
