Program Notes

Dedicated to Donald James Lefevre and the West Texas A&M University Symphonic Band, these three dances -- Autumn Foxtrot; Midnight Waltz and Falcon Polka -- were inspired by the experiences Zaninelli had as a pianist during the second world war.

-Program Note by publisher

Luigi Zaninelli composed this work as a musical memory of his playing in small dance orchestras during World War II. He was called upon to play a wide variety of dance forms and these are reflected in this composition.
