This work was written for Salvatore Vigano, ballet master of the Viennese court and was premiered in March of 1801. The musical theme of the ballet's finale reappeared later in the compoer's "Eroica" Symphony as well as in his "Eroica Variations" for piano. Comprehensive notes have been provided by Stanley Appelbaum, clarifying the historical and musical background of an unusual work. This is an unabridged Dover republication from the Breitkopf & Haertel edition.
