Program Notes

Gullywumps are mythical little creatures about two feet tall that like to dress in purple and orange. Not particularly coordinated, they still love to dance. Here in a suite of three dances (Promenade, Two Left Feet and Jig) the Gullywumps try their best to be rhythmic.

- Program Note from score

The opening dance, Promenade, features a tempo indication of “Puffy” and a clever melody stated initially by the clarinets with an oompah-like accompaniment. Dance number two, Two Left Feet (marked "Clumsy"), aptly reflects its title by using alternating meters throughout. This dance ends with a resounding bass drum thud, as if everyone just fell on their rumps. The final dance, Jig, (marked "Bouncy") is scored in time with a playful melody again initially stated by clarinets.
