Noten für BlasorchesterDancin' into the '20s (A Ragtime Dance Music Revue)
The music included in Dancin' into the '20s has been chosen to reflect some of the styles of music and corresponding use for exhibition and social dancing during the years leading into the 1920s. Each of the works has been orchestrated for wind band from extant published orchestra music of the period. The outside one-two step movements are energetic and perhaps more brusque in nature than The Richard's Tago and the Set of Waltzes from Victor Herbert's operetta scores. Each work may be programmed individually, and hopefully, the compilation will serve as a special example of music from a by gone era in American musical and theatrical history.
