Old Viennese favorites
Von Suppe is one of the lesser-known names among classical composers. However, most classical listeners (in fact most everybody) have heard of his music at least a few times, even though they don't actually realize who the composer is! Track 6 is the Light Cavalry Overture, and everyone has heard of this. In fact, it's probably one of those classical tunes that's been played in the Bugs Bunny cartoons numerous times in past decades. There is nothing cartoonish about this album. A few are lengthy (nearly ten minutes) heavy-weight classical favorites such as Track 1 Dichter und Bauer (Peasant and Poet) Overture. von Suppe is best known for his overtures, and his style was at par with the other better-known "overture masters" such as Rossini, Mozart and Verdi. von Suppe was a contemporary of Johann Strauss (the Waltz King), and both of them served as favored musicians of the 19th-century Austro-Hungarian Imperial court in Vienna. His music takes us back to the days of Imperial Vienna.
