The Roman Carnival Overture was composed in 1844 and first performed at the Salle Herz, Paris that year. It is a stand-alone overture intended for concert performance, made up of material and themes from Berlioz's opera Benvenuto Cellini, including some music from the opera's carnival scene. The overture is scored for large orchestra, is in the key of A major, and features a prominent and famous solo for the cor anglais.
