Product Details


"Hillandale Waltzes" for clarinet and piano was composed by Victor Babin, a well-known pianist, educator, and a pupil of Franz Schreker, towards the end of World War II (1947). The composition was dedicated to Standard Oil heiress Ann Archbold, who kindly housed the Babins in her Hillandale mansion in Washington, D.C., near Georgetown University.  The work was subtitled "Eight Waltz Movements Composed on a Theme by Johann N. Hummel." Hummel used this melody twice in both a piano duet and a work for oboe and orchestra. The Babins were very familiar with the former piece, having frequently performed it.  This arrangement for clarinet and piano was edited and arranged by American clarinetist Dennis Nygren. Dr. Nygren has also arranged "Hillandale Waltzes" for solo clarinet, 16 winds, double bass, and percussion, which is also available from LudwigMasters Publications (item #50160005).
