Composer: Debussy (arr. Gatwood)
Gollywogg's Cakewalk, from The Children's Corner originally for solo piano, has been beautifully arranged for cello quartet by Carole Gatwood. The quirky rhythms of the original, along with the homage to American jazz idioms, remain resplendent in this arrangement. Ms. Gatwood, a cellist herself, thoroughly understands cello technique so while this arrangement is not suitable for elementary groups, it is very accessible to intermediate level students. Quatracelli! has programmed this piece in many concerts and finds it fun to play and well received by audiences. This one is a winner!
