      An orchestral interlude written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov for his opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan, composed in 1899–1900. Its composition is intended to musically evoke the seemingly chaotic and rapidly changing flying pattern of a bumblebee. Despite the piece’s being a rather incidental part of the opera, it is today one of the more familiar classical works because of its frequent use in popular culture.

        You will laugh, but actually I am trying to play this piece in the pop version Franz Lambert played for the first time around 1975 on the Wersi W248. It was arranged by Berry Lipmann, a german arranger who was also composer of the title “Keep on Smiling” and “Girls from Paramaibo” and many more. Maybe some day I will be able to play something that maybe sounds a little bit like it should…

          How does that old saying go? “Practice Makes Perfect” or something like that! Sounds like an excellent project – Have Fun! 😎 🎹
