Structure : INTRO AA BB A C[C] INTERLUDE A[A]

A popular hit scored in 4/4 instead of the usual 2/4. Thickly textured using octaves instead of single notes. Favorite with bands for its strutting, folksy nature. In his happiest vein.

Soup and Fish rag (with Pete Wendling).

Structure : INTRO AA BB A CC

A wandering labyrinth of strange harmonies. The B-strain is an experiment in chromatic writing.
It has a 4-measure sequence on a previous four, with the same melodic intervals, only one-half step higher; but in character with the rest of the tune, there is a clever modulation back to the home key as soon as the feeling of a new key becomes established.

Composer of : Bantam Step, the Cat's Pajamas.

Little Haakon / Klein Haakon / Margretes Vuggesang

Nun schloss die Au-gen bei-de, zum Schlaf klein Haakon kaum
Da sieht er schon mit Lachen den allerschönsten Traum
Es baut sich eine Stie-ge hinauf zum Himmels-Zelt
Drauf steigen Gottes Englein her nieder zu der Welt
Die hüten seine Schlummer ge-treu die ganze Nacht
Schlaf süss und sanft, klein Haakon, auch deine Mutter wacht

Allegretto doloroso in G# Minor

Schlaf, mein Knabe, schlafe ein
Liegst so weich in Bett-chen dein
Ach, die dir das Leben gab
Ruht im kalten dunklen Grab
Warten deiner früh und spät
Decken dich in Liebe zu
Singen dich in süsse Ruh

Grieg's transcription of his own song.

Poco Allegretto e semplice
E minor
Hun er saa hvid / Wenn einst... Sie ist so weiss / She is so white

Wenn einst Sie lag an mei-ner Brust
Ver-meint ich wohl in höch-ster Lust
Ich lieb-te jetzt sie schon so sehr
Dass ich sie nie könnt lie-ben mehr!
Da nun sie nahm der Tod ans Herz
Erfahr ich's, auch, im tief-sten Schmerz:
Wie ich sie auch ge-liebt vor-her,
Ich lieb sie jetzt doch noch viel mehr !

LA DANZA (The Dance) is a tarantella with sweeping momentum. Pianistically felicitous: a transcription which is almost a paraphrase...
Allegro con brio in Rossini becomes with Liszt a 'Presto brillante', almost a double note study.
'La Danza' became one of Rossini's most popular pieces and a symbol of the passionate lust for life of the Italians.

Accelerando demanded in the score in the Trio...

6 months, 3 weeks ago

On the occasion birth-day anniversary of Miss Phoebe Thompson, the society leader of DarkTown; all of the coloured aristocrats assembled at Lime Killn Hall, to celebrate in her honor.
During the evening, Miss Thompson proposed a Cake-walk, having baked a magnificent birth day cake which she desired to present to the winner. All agreed readily, and the band played * PHOEBE JOHNSON'S CAKE WALK *

Refrain:
Gay wench-es dan-cin' swell coons a' prancin'
All felt that they that cake would surely take,
But when Phoebe Thomp-son and Rastus John-son
Came walkin' up through the hall they won Phoebe Thompson's cake

Composer of Eli Green's Cak-walk

An odd rag with unexpected harmonies in section-B, followed by a clever trio involving syncopation in both hands,but in a lyrical and original format.

The remarkable feauture of this 1904 rag is the C-section where Jordan applies anticipatory syncopation in an extended pattern throughout the entire section, giving the right hand a forward-moving, horizontal feeling, independant of the basic pulse, a texture usually associated with Advanced rags. The C-section was later used as the chorus for his 'Sweetie Dear'.

Characteristic CakeWalk and Two-Step

8 months, 1 week ago

The first truly syncopated cakewalk was published as a "two-step march" by its composer Kerry Mills (1869 - 1948), a classically-trained violinist.
It established what soon became a cakewalk harmonic cliché by beginning in a minor key and moving to the relative major (d - F), a construction that cakewalk writers later followed with a subdominant section (Bb)
