Program Notes

Galop Humoresque is a light-hearted galop featuring the percussion section.

- Program Note by publisher

In dance, the galop, named after the fastest running gait of a horse, a shortened version of the original term galoppade, is a lively country dance, introduced in the late 1820s to Parisian society by the Duchesse de Berry and popular in Vienna, Berlin and London. The galop was a forerunner of the polka. It was particularly popular as the final dance of the evening.
