Good Morning to you all. Here in the UK Summer is definitely showing signs of leaving us with a few chilly mornings and dreary days … let’s hope that there is an Indian Summer on the horizon!
This week we have seven new arrangements on Music Scores. Three of these are Anne’s arrangements and these are quite patriotic / strong pieces: The Can-Can, Rule Britannia and Jerusalem . The remaining four arrangements from Wagner and Bach have been arranged by David Lascelles and Klas Krantz.
Offenbach: The Can-Can – The Can-Can was written by Joseph Offenbach who was born 100 years ago in 1819 …..It was premiered in 1858 in the comic operetta Orpheus in the Underworld and considered extremely risqué and shocking at the time.
Do you associate this piece of music with the sophistication above or the more raucous dance moves performed by professionals or those who have had one two many at a family wedding!
