The China Daily always repays study. A list of items on a Beijing concert programme, c1987, once included (I kid you not)

Gollwogg’s “Cake Walk”.

For the PC debate, see e.g. here. Cf. Learning the piano.

Anyway, the title puts me in mind of the classic

  • Cave overture by Fingal,

and indeed

  • Pique-nique by Edouard Ibert (Jacques’ little-known kid brother—Ted to his friends).

This is in the same ball-park as the Martin string quartet.

And Swan Lake has come out in Chinese as Goose Pond
