Galop Music Recordings and Sheet Music

A galop is a form of music and dance which was popular during the early 19th century over many European cities. Considered by some a forerunner of the polka and can can, it was danced in a close position, and following a 2/4 meter at a fast tempo. Being a very energetic type of dance, it was usually used to end dances, balls, and receptions. Even after it fell out of use, many composers wrote artistic galops, both as standalone pieces or as movements in symphonic works.
