Overture to Orpheus in the Underworld

The dazzling Overture from Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld or Orphée aux enfers is a must-have for the concert organist, brilliantly transcribed from the original score by Thomas Heywood.

Full of orchestral colour and dashing virtuoso passagework, Offenbach's famous Overture concludes with one of the most identifiable melodies in musical history - the Can-Can!
