Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (October 28, 2017)

A march is usually in two-four time and waltz is in three-four time. That’s like two halves of a pie versus three thirds of a pie. The parts won’t quite match up. However, from time to time, music in three-four time has been converted to two-four time. Today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion features a waltz converted to a march. The waltz, called “The Roses,” was composed by Olivier Metra who lived from 1830 to 1886. He started life as an actor at age 12, but eventually became a popular French composer of operettas, especially for the Follies Begere.
