It is believed in its original incarnation, the slaves performed the cakewalk as a sort of mockery of their owners. Its inclusion, however, in the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia set the dance on a path to capture the fascination of America and Europe alike. At this performance, a giant cake was awarded to the winning couple, thereby forever solidifying its name. Soon vaudeville artists, such as Bert Williams and George Walker, took up the dance and helped further spread its appeal. In time, the cakewalk reached Europe where it became particularly fashionable in the resorts along the southern English coast. It is also much easier to play than its companion piece. With its classic ragtime rhythm and jaunty melodic lines, it has remained a popular piece in piano methods to the present day.

You are wondering: why I am posting such a dull-titled text to my blog. Well, this is one of the most fascinating guides to 19th century piano teaching methods that I have ever come across, and since it is buried in a two column format at the front of a lengthy volume of music, I doubt if it have ever been digitized before. It is daunting to think that HvB expected his students to be able to play Beethoven's sonata Op. The English translation used is by Constance Bache, and I have retained the antiquated grammar, capitalisation, abbreviations etc. Here is the full text: It is not the object of the following lines fully to descant on the merits, universally known and acknowledged, and the priceless value and lasting importance of J. The need for an instructive edition of this kind has already been often felt. It is idle to criticise the above-mentioned editions, as the present one is only the outcome of the criticism of them. The old want remains indeed still unfulfilled: he who observes attentively the doings of the piano-playing world cannot help seeing how seldom, in proportion to its wide circulation, the real studying material contained in Cramer is exhaustively employed. A well-conceived and methodical use of this would, on the other hand, lay a firm foundation for the discipline of the virtuoso in the best sense of the word, and would in the end develop some amount of technical and intellectual maturity in the pupil. Yet with what superficiality, what thoughtless routine, do both teacher and taught generally proceed!
But it is luck of the draw. But marriages don't last if you have to hold back ugly, sarcastic comments when your partner attends religious services or defends religious beliefs. You might need to trade missionary lessons for research on her part, and we can suggest less scary resources. It also means that you have to give her something particular to do. Sometimes I wonder if it's "Better to end it now and cut off the limb and let the stump heal". I've been married to a cardiologist for 30 years.
