Frangipani celebrates not only that fragrant tropical shrub of the genus Plumeria but also the Italian aristocratic perfumer, Marquis Muzio Frangipani who exploited it. In accordance with the subtitle, the whole piece conjures up an exotic atmosphere pungent with mystery. The fox-trot itself is in AABBACCA form with a 4-bar introduction and a 2-bar interlude preceding the final A-strain. The A-, B- and C-strains are written in the major keys of Bb, D and Eb respectively.
Frangipani was published in Cadenza by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
