Misc. Comments

During the first years of Tivoli Garden’s history, allegiances in the music life of the amusement park were decidedly split between Lumbye’s orchestra (known as The Lumbye Society) and the First Brigade’s Brass Band (known as The Braunstein Brass Band). These two ensembles often appeared in the setting of a certain form of reciprocal musical rivalry. As a playful commentary on this musical competition, Lumbye composed his Telegraph Gallop, which was performed by both ensembles, playing simultaneously, albeit at opposite ends of the concert hall. With its intricate interactions going on between the two orchestral groups which, in a musical respect, are “telegraphing” various melodies to each other, the gallop has been conceived in a most refined and sophisticated fashion. At the outset, the “connection” between the two ensembles is somewhat indistinct because at the start of the piece, they are playing in different keys, but gradually they manage to find each other and converge in a common key; in the end, symphony orchestra and brass band are united in perfect harmony.

The gallop quickly became one of Lumbye’s most popular works in the audience’s estimation.
