@ABitRusty - 

Think this "Cricket on The Hearth" is supposed to sound more like Dicken's (?), than 'cricket'. (lol) 

Believe it or not, the 'cricket on the hearth thing' started when I ran across an old animated film version of the Dicken's 'Classic'.  Really annoyed I don't remember ever reading it, decided to save the video for the Grandkids to watch this upcoming Holiday Season. 

I'm a bit fascinated to find how various people/composers interpret an idea (title) for strings.  Think it's so cool to hear such completely different pieces developed in different genres - like the "Midnight Waltz" in Many Faces of the Violin - All Seen in a Waltz Thread.

So, Classical piece of "Cricket on the Hearth" here, and also these other genres:

Parlor Music Thread

Old Time Critter Tunes Thread

 

... also check out "The Cricket Marches Over The Salt Box", a beautiful jig (played slow & fast) in the Celtic/Cape Breton Music Over-run With Critters!

Found a really fun, 3-part Classical piece for Violin & Piano by Dr. Peter Arnstein (pianist/composer), played by Michael Antonello (violinist) - the "Grasshopper Suite"

 

Grasshopper Suite: I Courtship Dance

Grasshopper Suite: II Upside-down Courship Dance

Grasshopper Suite: III Grasshopper honeymoon Dance.
