This is truly beautiful. It’s a winner! Amazing quality of playing and wonderfully charming interpretation, in spite of the limitations of 1910 recorded sound. Thank you very much, Tim, for this one!
I’m glad you like it. I like the piece too. Have you ever played it? Do you know who arranged it?
No, the piece is unfamiliar to me. Don’t even remember ever hearing it before. You know, this kind of bonbons were completely out of fashion by the time i learned how to fiddle.
It’s originally a piece for solo piano, one of Chabrier’s “Dix Pieces Pittoresques.”
