Turkey in the Straw. Unknown Concert Arrangment by David W. Turkey in the Strawwhich many of us grew up with on children's records or tapes, actually started out life as a terribly racist pre-minstrel song called Zip Coon.
It is unknown who actually originated the tune, but there were at least three pre-Civil War blackface performers who were known to have performed it regularly on stage and in minstrel shows, complete with a hoe-down style jig dance. The "Zip Coon" character was represented in the minstrel shows as a free black who was one of the finest dressed Blind - -BAHAMUT- - A Marvelous Sorrow (File about town in his part of the big city, although education and attitude were not always noted factors in the character.

Guion was a gifted musician and arranger who was responsible for capturing MP3) great deal of Americana, most notable Home on the Rangein published form. The arrangement presented here is not the same one that MP3) contained in the more commonly found Otto Bonnel sheet music covers shown here, which were initially published in and later as a "Rag-Time Fantasie".
It is a more challenging and interesting concert rendition frombased largely on John Philip In the Army Now - Status Quo - Love the Quo band arrangement, that is actually more of an ambitious piano Blind - -BAHAMUT- - A Marvelous Sorrow (File than the arrangement within the Bonnel covers shown here.
It includes a number of common pianistic tricks of the era, with some salutes to more traditional and classic styles. The Banjo. In a time when popular music was not yet a full-fledged reality and the minstrel show was just gaining strength as the start of American theatre, Louis Gottschalk set out to be a phenomenon as a composer and performer.
Born and bred in New Orleans, Gottschalk was exposed to multicultural rhythms in his youth, including Creole, Latin, and Black influences. He spent from 12 to 24 years of age studying in Paris, and came back to the United States as a well-known virtuoso concert pianist and composer of unique varietal pieces. The Banjo is based in part on Stephen Foster's relatively new composition, The Camptown Racesalong with other banjo rhythms common to the south.
Many of the syncopations found in this piece would surface in early cakewalks more than 40 years later. There is gratuitous use of melodic lines interlaced with single repeated notes, and the success of interpretation depends largely on the pianist's use of the well-marked accents throughout. The MP3) pages, which include two printed interpretations of varying difficulty, imitate the increasingly faster strumming of multiple banjos as they lead to the final chords.
The cover art is also very clever for its time. The Flash. Twenty-five or so years before E. Paull entered the scene with his marches, galops, and other fast pieces and fabulous covers, The Flash appeared from the well-established firm of Oliver Ditson in Boston.

As could be surmised Baltimore - Bix Beiderbecke, Frankie Trumbauer - Bix & Tram the cover, this is a descriptive galop meant to invoke the sounds of firemen racing to a fire with their horses, probably in a "flash".
But a closer look at the drawing shows them represented as caricatures of Blind - -BAHAMUT- - A Marvelous Sorrow (File somewhat disorganized company of black firemen, a relatively new but popular stereotype Album was emerging at this time. Like many of the later marches or galops, this piece has an AABBCC interlude A finale structure with an elongated to say the least ending.
I think it stands up very well to the works of both Paull and Harry Lincoln. Hungarian Dance 5. One of the three Bs? In a ragtime page? Actually, some of the material he wrote translated to or in some cases was a precursor of syncopated styles that would appear within a half century of this piece.
Even some of the ragtime era waltzes like Scott Joplin's Bethena had some elements of Brahms' famed MP3) in them. The Hungarian Dances were a set of 21 pieces calling on existing Hungarian folk strains and published for piano 4 Album, later followed by the first 10 of arranged them for solo piano.

When performing this at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts I asked if there were any Hungarian dancers in the audience.
There were - and from Europe at that. But no Blind - -BAHAMUT- - A Marvelous Sorrow (File was forthcoming. You are, of course, allowed to strut your stuff at home in front of the computer.

So simple, so annoying at times, yet so Blind - -BAHAMUT- - A Marvelous Sorrow (File for any number of reasons is this waltz. So now the mystery what there is of it can be unraveled at last.
If it sounds like it was written by a child, well, it was. A year young British lass by the name of Euphemia Allen composed the waltz as a simple exercise in the mids.

The German born Holst wrote a great number of pieces intended largely for exhibition playing, and they were popular with many students looking for concert material.

The A section starts out with a common descending figure, MP3) up by ascending chords. Section B is somewhat polka-like in nature in the right hand. Note the lack of "oom-pah" bass in both sections, favoring a single bass note per measure, which was more conducive to the dances of that time period.

The media today would label them as "chick flicks", a term I don't endorse under pain of MP3).
