"Mazeppa, Grand Galop de Concert" by Wollenhaupt
By Martin Anderson

I have a roll for my Aeolian Orchestrelle (#20180), entitled
"Mazeppa. Grand Galop de Concert", by Wollenhaupt.

I am curious about the name "Mazeppa".  I cannot find a definition of
this word.  Any comments would be appreciated.  I have looked online at
the free dictionary, and have also "Googled" this word.  An abundance
of information, but no definition.

 [ At
 [   The German born composer and pianist Hermann Adolph Wollenhaupt
 [   (1827-65) studied at the Leipzig Conservatorium and had a brilliant
 [   early career before moving to live and teach in New York in 1845
 [   where he composed and performed.
 [ "Mazeppa" was published in New York in 1858 and dedicated to Anton
 [ Rubinstein (1829-1894), who had just concluded a successful 4-year
 [ concert tour which "reestablished his reputation as a virtuoso."
