The Get-a-Way is a bright, chirpy, jog-along of a march. Whether it was inspired by a successful bank raid, a perfect honeymoon or some other enjoyable retreat is lost in ragtime history. Whatever, its form is AABBCCC form with a 4-bar introduction and a 12-bar interlude preceding the final C-strain. The AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of G and C respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet, basses predominate - care must be taken therefore that they do not overwhelm the melody voices. A must for bass-loving ensembles!
The Get-a-Way was published in Melody by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
