Alfred Hollins (1865-1942), is probably best known for his A
Trumpet Minuet (1929). The Concert Overture here is the work
of a much younger composer and contains the exuberance one might expect
in an early work. This is the first of the three pieces he wrote called “Concert
Overture,” which he used as grand openings for his recitals. It is
basically in sonata form and requires moderate technical ability.
