Donizetti / Harry Alford / Marc Oliver - Ayotte Custom Musical Engravings
Publisher Desc. Lucys Sextette is (as originally published) A Ragtime Travesty on the Sextette from Lucia. The sextette mentioned is from the 2nd Act of the opera Lucia di Lammamoor by Gaetano Donizetti, Che mi frena in tal momento. Alford, probably in a weak moment (or maybe he needed the money), took the two themes of the sextette and gave them a ragtime twist, complete with jazzy articulations and trombone smears.
