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 second of the three
pieces he wrote called “Concert Overture,” which he used as grand openings for his recitals. A reviewer from 1899 wrote that it
“is a clever work by an equally clever performer. It is ‘showy,’ but good, and very useful for recital purposes.” Moderate.
