Champagne Galop is perhaps Lumbye┬┤s most famous and popular piece. It traditionally forms the finale of every gala night at Tivoli in Copenhagen. It was written for the Birthday festival of Tivoli in 1854. Champagne Galop is a kind of "programme music", in the first bars (of the orchestra version) one hears the pop of a champagne cork. A pianist would need the help of an assistant to be able to emulate this effect!

THE STRAUSS OF THE NORTH

Hans Christian Lumbye, (181074), Danish composer and conductor. Lumbye was one of the most important names in danish 19th century music. He created the kind of light entertainment musical tradition, which is now associated with Tivoli in Copenhagen. He was chief conductor and leader of the Tivoli Symphony Orchestra between 1843 to 1872. As a composer he was influenced by viennese music and especially by Strauss. Lumbye composed over 600 pieces, many of them are typical of its time (polkas, marches, waltzes). Most familiar today is perhaps Champagne Galop (1845), which is still often heard. Lumbye┬┤ s music possesses, in the very best sense, everything associated with light classical music, and is still very attractive.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
