Sorry folks but it cannot be left unsaid - there is no nonsense about Nonsense! Here we have a delightful rag that is fully in accordance with the subtitle and is as ragged as it gets. Its form is AABBACCB form with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude between the A- and C-strains whereby the AABBA- and CCB-.strains are in the major keys of C and F respectively. A great piece for treble players who have all the melodies from start to finish.
Nonsense was published by Jos. W. Stern & Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
There is also a treble solo version of this item.
