July 16, 2019 ~ Daily Listening Assignment

 

 

Today’s piece is the one that all kids seem to be able to teach each other without having any lessons at all.

“Chopsticks” (original name “The Celebrated Chop Waltz”) is a simple, widely known waltz for the piano. Written in 1877, it is the only published piece by the British composer Euphemia Allen (under the pseudonym Arthur de Lulli).

Allen, whose brother was a music publisher, was sixteen when she composed the piece, with arrangements for solo and duet.
