Le Troubadour Wallon
Transcripted music manuscripts of old dance music of Wallonia (Belgium)
XXth century: Brass bands !
The collected documents are mainly music sheets for brass ensemble. The playing keysdiffer from the favorite violin keys.

While the pieces of previous centuries were limited to a traditionnal AABB structure, here we usually have a "Trio" in addition that gives a little variety. So we play AABBA, then twice the trio.

There is also frequently an introduction and a coda.

Dance styles are waltzes, scottiches and polkas.
