Bumble Boogie


Piano Sam Dickenson Bumble Boogie by Jack Fina. In 1899 Nikolai Rimsky Korsakov created his opera, The Tale of Tsar Sultan including an orchestral interlude named Flight of the Bumblebee as it was appropriate in the context of the play. This interlude was mostly a chromatic sequence using the violins as the principal instrument. Since then, a popular solo piano transcription was written by Sergei Rachmaninoff, and is a favourite encore piece of concert pianists. However, in 1946, an exciting pianist, Jack Fina put his own touch to it, writing an entire boogie woogie version, and has been a favourite of boogie pianists, recorded and performed by greats such as Winifred Atwell and Liberace. This work has since been performed and constantly improvised upon with settings from small ensemble to orchestra. Bumble Boogie as it was named, has now become a standard test piece in the AMEB grade 8 syllabus, and is a favourite of many popular performers.
