Notes on Vincenzo Gallo, Piccola Sinfonia
The composer of this lovely and elegant Sinfonia was Vincenzo Gallo (1861–1941) who founded the civic band in Barletto, Italy in 1882. The civic archives indicates this composition was first composed for orchestra, but since there is also a band autograph manuscript from 1884 we can assume the composer made this version for his new civic band.
This live performance was given on 13 March 1992, by the California State University Northridge Wind Ensemble, David Whitwell, Conductor.
