Golliwogg's Cakewalk is the final piece in Claude Debussy's six-movement suite for piano entitled Children's Corner (1908). It was influenced by African culture popular at the time in Paris.
Cakewalk is a 2/4 time jaunty dance step from the American South. In the early 20th century, it was also performed at the black dance halls in Montparnasse district, drawing the attention of European artists. Cakewalk music, from the mid-19th century, combined polyrhythm, syncopation, and habanera rhythm with a regular march two-step, and is considered to be influential in the development of American jazz.
This is a flexible ensemble instrumentation arrangement. The number of performers and instruments should be modified throughout the piece according to melodic and dynamic requirements. This adjustment in instrumentation will help achieve the wider dynamic ranges of pp to ff. It is suggested that the ensemble personalize the orchestration by creating extra solo, tutti woodwind and brass sections, using brass only on the accents.
