Much recorded, The Cubanola Glide is a lovely piece of music which lends itself especially well to transcription for recorder quintet. An all tenor and bass affair, these sonorous instruments give the charming melodies something extra. The 1st tenor has all the running having the lead from start to finish. Its form is AABBACCDD form with a 4-bar introduction and 4-bar interludes between the AC- and CD-strains. The A-, BC- and D-strains are written in the major keys of C, F and Bb respectively. The key to this composition is to follow the composer's wishes and to play it slow and raggy.
The Cubanola Glide was published by Harry von Tilzer Music Pub. Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 68 crotchets/min. is suggested.
