Golliwogg's Cakewalk [Flute Choir]
From the Publisher
Winner - National Flute Association 1996 Newly-Published Music Award. Romp through this complete transcription of Debussy's ragtime classic.
In 1908, fourteen years after composing the Prélude à l'Après-midi d'un faune, Claude Debussy completed the piano suite, Children’s Corner, which was dedicated to his daughter “Chouchou.” The sixth and final movement, Golliwogg’s Cakewalk, is a delightfully clever miniature that demonstrates Debussy’s recognition of two major trends in late nineteenth century music: the innovative ragtime rhythms of American culture, and a "tribute" to Richard Wagner by including a quotation from the famous opera, Tristan and Isolde.
