One of the most popular dances of the 19th century, the galop was said to have originated from the rhythm of the hooves of horses, as they would beat on the ground or on the street. As the title implies, this piece is very lively but also includes strong melodic content. Well crafted, Galop is a delightful fun piece perfect as lighter repertoire for your concert programs.
