Quick Overview

Whoopee in D is a reworking of the overture to my unproduced comic opera, Entente Cordiale-A Satire with Music (1936). The overture is based on the melody J.S. Bach added to the Chorale, Wachet auf, and treated successively as a polka, rumba and galop, with more or less irrelevant circus interludes. This was partly to annoy my then piano teacher who customarily played this chorale as an encore at his piano recitals.
