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.
