Notes on the Ponchielli, Marcia Funebre

The Mar­cia fune­bre in hon­or of his father, a shop keep­er and vil­lage organ­ist, was com­posed by the great Ital­ian com­pos­er Amil­care Ponchiel­li (1834–1886).

There are a num­ber of these com­mem­o­ra­tive funer­al march­es among the 19th cen­tu­ry Ital­ian orig­i­nal band reper­toire. The style is almost nev­er of a func­tion­al nature which might be used in an actu­al funer­al pro­ces­sion. Instead they are more in the nature of an ele­gy and often of pro­found emo­tion­al depth.
