Program Notes

This is something you don't see every day! A sophisticated ragtime piece on a not-so-sophisticated subject, a literal case of "ants in the pants." As the hapless victim performs his ant-induced syncopated gyrations, the music quickens and we hear the victim slapping and scratching in an effort to rid himself of the tickly creatures. Brass players will especially enjoy flutter-tonguing, glisses, and "wa-was" in this wildly entertaining tune.
