Yesterday I posted about the twilight of the cavalry at the beginning of World War I. As it turns out there is a very famous classical piece that goes with this. Franz von Suppé was an Austrian composer from the high romantic era. He made his living writing operas and operettas for the Vienna upper classes. While he wrote over 100 pieces, this is without doubt his most famous composition; you very well may recognize it.
It is said that the theme music for Dudley Do-Right from the old Bullwinkle cartoon. I'll let you be the judge.
