Program Notes

The music included in Dancin' into the 20's has been chosen to reflect some of the styles of music and corresponding use for exhibition and social dancing during the years leading into the 1920s. Each of the works has been orchestrated for wind band from extant published orchestra music of the period. The outside one-two step movements are energetic and perhaps more brusque in nature than The Richard's Tango and the Set of Waltzes from Victor Herbert's operetta scores. Each work may be programmed individually, and hopefully, the compilation will serve as a special example of music from a bygone era in American musical and theatrical history.

- Program Note by publisher

This medley contains 1. Piccalilli rag, 2 step / music by George A. Reeg jr.; 2. The Richard's tango / music by Elizabeth Scates; 3. Waltz set / music by Victor Herbert; and 4. Hunkatin / music by Sol P. Levy.
