Golliwog’s Cakewalk (for Full Orchestra) – Score and parts (in E)
One of Debussy’s most popular piano pieces comes to the full orchestra. The adventure leaps between the different sections as Debussy’s toy clown tumbles between jollity and Wagnerian melancholy. The arrangement makes the most of Debussy’s musical jibe at Wagner, bringing the ‘Tristan’ theme back to the cellos once more. A short work sure to delight and make a fizzling contribution to a concert programme. This version is transposed up a semitone from the original to the key of E (G for the middle section), to make it easier on some orchestral section players. Great for youth orchestras!
