About 'Golliwoggs Cakewalk from Childrens Corner'



Artist:
Debussy, Claude (biography)
Born:
1862 , St Germain-en-Laye
Died:
1918 , Paris
The Artist:
Among the most important 20th century composers, and the most influential. Often dubbed a musical impressionist, but his music always has a strong sense of form.
Composed:1875
Info:
At the time of its composition, Golliwoggs were in fashion, due partly to the popularity at that time of the novels of Florence Kate Upton ("golliwog" is a later usage). They were stuffed black dolls with red pants, red bow ties and wild hair, somewhat reminiscent of the black-face minstrels of the time. This is a ragtime piece with its syncopations and banjo-like effects.

The B section of this dance is interrupted on several occasions by the love-death leitmotif of Richard Wagner's opera Tristan und Isolde. Each quotation is followed with banjo imitations.

The cakewalk was a dance or a strut and the dancer with the most elaborate steps won a cake ("took the cake").
