THE VICTORIAN DANCE is a lively collection of vintage dance music which captures the flavor of the 19th century dance hall - waltzes, polkas, schottisches, quick-steps, mazurkas, marches and more, performed by THE BRASSWORKS BAND under the direction of Frank Beau Davis. It contains music made popular at The Great Dickens Christmas Fair and at the Gaskells Society Victorian Balls. Highlights of the album include six tracks recorded "live" at the Gaskells Ball, French Baroque composer Jean Joseph Mouret's "Rondeau", which has become world famous as the theme music of BBC-TV's "Masterpiece Theatre", plus authentic Civil War music from "The American Brass Band Journal" and lilting Oktoberfest dances from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The rarely recorded "Sir Roger de Coverley" is of particular historical interest to fans and scholars of Charles Dickens. It is the tune the fiddler strikes up in "A Christmas Carol" at Fezziwig's Yuletide party, while the Ghost of Christmas Past forces Ebenezer Scrooge to watch the dancers celebrate Christmas. This album is The Brassworks Band's first release; our second CD, "The Congress of Vienna", can be found in the Classical Music category. [less]

THE CONGRESS OF VIENNA is an album of vintage ballroom dance music played by The Brassworks, a six-piece brass band based in the San Francisco Bay Area. The dance styles on the album include Waltz, Polka, Schottische, Mazurka, Galop, Quadrille, March, Reel, Varsouvienne, and Zwiefache. It features classics from Johann Strauss, Jr., Eduard Strauss, Louis Moreau Gottschalk and John Philip Sousa, operatic excerpts from Verdi and Gounod, folk and traditional tunes from Europe, the British Isles and America, early California and Civil War era dance music, and two recently composed waltzes, including Jay Ungar's "Ashokan Farewell". Most of the arrangements are by the Band's co-founder and director, Frank Beau Davis. The title track, "The Congress of Vienna", is a set of fetchingly bittersweet Swedish folk waltzes. Its English Regency style dance step was developed by John Hertz of Los Angeles. This perfect pairing of step and music in a gracefully figured waltz sequence has become phenomenally popular among West Coast vintage dancers. It is also The Brassworks Band's most requested dance number. At over 73 minutes in length, with 23 tracks, the album not only gives a wide representation of vintage dance styles; its lively arrangements also provide a great listening experience: very upbeat, uplifting, and infectiously toe-tapping.
