Score pre­view


This orig­i­nal sym­pho­ny for band was ded­i­cat­ed to Umber­to I, King of Italy, who reigned from 1878 to 1900. Vital­i­ti was the “Mae­stro di musi­ca” in the town of Gia­rre, Cata­nia, in Italy. There he was an active music teacher and com­posed two oper­at­tas which were per­formed in Cata­nia (1887) and Naples (1888).

This mod­ern edi­tion is by David Whitwell. The orig­i­nal man­u­script was not scored for sax­o­phones, but they are added incon­spic­u­ous­ly here in order that those stu­dents can expe­ri­ence this unusu­al­ly fine exam­ple of the Ital­ian band reper­toire. We have also sub­sti­tut­ed the oboe for the orig­i­nal Eb flute.


This live per­for­mance was giv­en Decem­ber 1, 1989 by the Cal­i­for­nia State Uni­ver­si­ty Wind Ensem­ble, David Whitwell, Conductor.
