The type of music heard in the park 100 years ago by a good community band, "The Bird Seller" today is Zeller's essential remaining work. Eiji Suzuki has further enhanced this collection with full percussion, including many mallet parts, piano and harp.

The operetta's most beloved tunes occur at letters "J" and "M", wonderful melodies. This arrangement begins, and ends with marches, which Zeller was known for in his day, but are little played today.

Suzuki arranged this work in three parts, which can stand alone. Collectively, the two "full stops" in the work are unusual, but typical of the time when collections were arranged as a potpourri without elaborate bridges between sections.

Arranged in largely tutti form, there are not so many challenges for the woodwinds, but rather it is a well-blended piece that audiences should love.
