The title is just an alliterative gimmick — wombats do not waltz! This name however seems to have piqued the curiosity of many YouTube viewers who were perhaps expecting to see some sort of wombat ritual. The piece is a five-part rondo and presents no particular technical difficulties. Duration: 2:15
On the ARS website and YouTube recording, the performers are: Janos Ungvary, alto; Anthony St. Pierre, tenor; Scott Paterson, bass.
