There are a handful of melodies that nearly everyone knows after hearing just the first few notes, and such is the case with this tune. (We imagine that 99.9% of piano students learn the work.) Because of its near-perfect balance in contrasting style and tempos, this concert band scoring not only educates, it also entertains performer and listener alike. Delightful! (duration 3:22).
