It would be nice to know how Dreamy Eyes
came to its title. Although the cover of the original sheet music does indeed depict a very dreamy eyed maiden replete with flower-bestrewn hair, there is nothing at dreamy about this very pleasant and smooth march. This recorder adaptation does make some demands on the bass players in that the top range of their chosen instrument is often required. It the result is too "squeaky" then the corresponding passages can be played an octave down without detriment. The 2nd tenor has an extra pleasure in being required to do a little "tootling" on descant in a few echo-like passages. Although Lampe gives us a Da Capo at the end of this piece there is not a corresponding Fine in sight! A printing error, perhaps or is a kind of Perpetuum Mobile à la the elder Strauss intended? Be that as it may, a repeat of the complete march does no harm.
