The Overture in C major, the so-called"Trumpet Overture"with its brass fanfare was composed in 1826 and a second version with considerable revisions was made in 1833 for performances in Dusseldorf and London .

The Overture in C major was first published posthumously in 1867.

Christopher Hogwood's Urtext edition takes into account both Mendelssohn's autograph now held in the Bibliotheque nationale in Paris which has two endings as well as the London manuscript copy made for the performance there in 1834; this manuscript contains three separate trombone parts in Mendelssohn's hand. The new Barenreiter edition presents the work as found in Mendelssohn's autograph for the first time. Christopher Hogwood also documents the development of the overture with facsimiles from the 1826 version.
