Time's Fallows, Mr Magoo's Tumble

Composer: SILLS Philip

DZ 2105


ISBN: 978-2-89737-022-0

Solo Guitar

8 p.


"Here are two pieces of very 'lightweight' character. Time's Fallows is a swing-rhythm work with hint of a jazzy quality. With not much going off in the bass department the piece relies heavily upon a strong melody line which carries the whole thing from start to finish. Mr Maqoo's Tumble is an amusing little ditty played once again in swing rhythm. Never having been a fan of this cartoon character from the '50s, I'm not sure whether the tempo indication of 'Drunkenly' is applicable to the Magoo personality. I do know that he was used to advertise an American beer in several advertisements so perhaps that solves the mystery. Whether that is the correct solution or not, this piece is a lovely example of how to write in an amusing and skilful fashion and keep musical interest. These are two works which could easily be paired together in the order of appearance in this edition. Perhaps not intended by Sills but both compositions are reminiscent of the 19th-century British Music Hall scene, and like many a comic-singer who trod the boards, they are almost guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Both works are of the Intermediate standard and are nicely presented and helpfully fingered. [...]"
