Johnson composed Dixie Twilight for piano, mandolin, mandola (an obsolete lute-like stringed instrument related to the mandolin), guitar, banjo, flute, full military band and orchestra so I fell fairly sure that he would have appreciated this recorder adaptation. It is unlikely that he had much acquaintance with the recorder in those far ragtime days. Had he done so then most likely I would not be writing these lines today. Dixie Twilight is a bright cheerful march, its ABACA rondo form seems to suggest that it is a straight-up-and-down cakewalk which leads some commentators to believe that it was written much earlier than 1909.
Dixie Twilight was published by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 90 crotchets/min. is suggested.
