A clever novelty piece based on the the famous Can-Can dance. Wonderful use of percussion intertwined with the easy band parts. Will bring a smile to any audience and make the performers want to play it often.
Poor Orpheus! As soon as he gets into his famous dance, odd 3/4 bars and unusual happenings get in his way. Another of Michael Brand's humorous looks at the classics.
