Notes & Reviews:

These overtures and marches represent a collection of occasional pieces written by Wagner either to commission or to impress. All are characterized by his mastery of orchestration and exuberance of melodic invention. Both "Polonia" and "Rule Britannia" were composed in 1836 when Wagner was seeking to establish himself. By contrast, the "Imperial March" and the "American Centennial March" were written at the end of Wagner's life.
