Fiddle Faddle (musical composition)
Fiddle Faddle is a musical composition in 2/2 time composed by Leroy Anderson. It is considered to be a "light" classical music composition, sometimes referred to as "classical pops" music and was published in 1947.
Anderson wrote the piece as one of a number of pieces commissioned over time by Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops Orchestra. The finished piece instantly became a favorite of audiences and Arthur Fiedler alike. Fiedler programmed it so frequently in Pops concerts that the Pops audiences began referring to it as "Fiedler Faddle". Written in classic "song-and-trio" form, it is based on the childhood nursery song "Three Blind Mice". It was recorded many times in the late 1940s and early 1950s by a variety of musical ensembles. As implied by the title the piece features the violins prominently with repeated semiquavers continued with pizzicato in what's seen as the Trio section.
