Subject: Tune Add: Burgerbeitz Tanze
From: GUEST,smiley
Date: 18 Jul 13 - 09:59 AM

I'm trying to find out some background to a nice 3-part 6/8 tune that I picked up from a hurdy gurdy player named Heloise in Canberra (Australia) around 1988. It may be misnamed, as "Burgerbeitz Tanze" doesn't seem correct German to me. Does anyone recognise the tune and know its origins?

I've recorded it here in the key of D and the abc version for the tune as originally played in the key of C major is below:

X:1
T: Burgerbeitz Tanze
K:C
M: 6/8
L: 1/8

thanks, Ian

You mentioned that on melnet. I pointed out there that the first part is the same as one of the parts of the Neapolitan Tarantella (and I think I've heard your third part played with that too).

Thanks Jack. Could you point me to a recording of the Neapolitan Tarantella you're thinking of, so I can compare them? I know one tune by that name but it doesn't sound similar to the Burgerbeitz.

I'm hoping there's a broader range of readers on mudcat, and that someone with a german background might be able to confirm if the tune's title sounds authentic. Its interesting to see the overlap between melodeon.net and mudcat.org readership.

Unless you changed tunes, the second part of the Burgerbeitz Tanz is the Irving Berlin tune "Puttin' on the Ritz."

Here it is on YouTube:

What you were playing starts at 29 seconds into the video.

Oh, now I see! You were moving straight from one song to the next.

Soundcloud has this stupid new 'feature' that annoyingly plays another track straight after the one you've chosen to listen to. I wish I could turn the 'continuous play' off. Sorry it confused you leenia.
