REEL DES MONTAGNES [1]. AKA and see "Bielbie's Hornpipe," "Curlew Hills Polka (The)," "International Schottische," "Military Schottische," "Mountain Reel (2)," "Original Schottische Polka (The)." French-Canadian, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. From the repertoire of Montreal fiddler Joseph Allard (1873-1947), recorded by him in 1929. It is a different tune than Jean Carignan's "Reel de Montagne," also attributed to his teacher and mentor, Allard, and it is different from the Chevaliers du folklore "Reel des montagnes (2)." Allard's recording was re-issued on Victor's subsidiary Bluebird label in 1936. The tune is a well travelled one, internationally known, but was first printed in sources dated 1840-1849 in a piano arrangement credited to French musician and musical entrepreneur Louis Antoine Jullien (1812-1860) (see note for "Original Schottische Polka (The)").
