This is proving to be a very nice collection - not just of some very impressive instruments but some highly competent playing too. Recommended!

A very funny and very clever piece, superbly played.

I can identify Bach,Widor,and Vivaldi,but I can't identify several other composers' themes in this piece. Anybody else know? Thanks.

By: Brian on Feb, 24 2012

Variations on the "Sailor's Hornpipe" in the styles of Bach (Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, 1st movement), Vivaldi ("Spring", 1st movement, from The Four Seasons), Arne (Rule Britannia) and Widor (the Toccata from the organ symphony No. 5).
