"Chopsticks" - "The Celebrated Chop Waltz"
By Robin Ash

-- non-subscriber, please reply to sender and MMD --

On February 3, 1877, "The Celebrated Chop Waltz" -- better known as
"Chopsticks" -- was registered at the British Museum.  Arranged as
a duet and solo for pianoforte by Arthur de Lull (a pseudonym for
Euphemia Alten, the music publisher's sister who wrote it when she
was 16), it has since been played on millions of pianos throughout
the world.
