The title of this piece tells you all you need to know! If you have a festive occasion that calls for a featured moment with brass and organ, you can’t go wrong with this one. From the opening fanfare, which recurs throughout, to the lyrical writing for the lower brass, followed by the trumpet’s quoting of ICH HALTE TREULICH STILL, “Sinfonia Festiva” will set the proper tone. A trombone may substitute for the horn in F; the tuba and timpani are optional.

The Tuba and Timpani are optional.
