Brussels Symphony Orchestra, directed by Fernand Terby,
including, Reflexions d'un Comique (1956), which
Donald conducted at the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The
four other tracks are Introduction and Identification,
Donald's Waltz, Here Comes Donald and
Christmas Comes Once Year. This song according
to the liner
"CHRISTMAS COMES ONCE A
Mr. Irving Berlin presented Donald with a special
piano which when one plays on the black keys, by just
sliding a lever, the black keys can become the sound
of the white keys.
In introducing "CHRISTMAS COMES ONCE A YEAR" his friends
tried to show how the composition was born, exactly
how Donald conceived it (on the black keys) and the
development that takes place therein so that by its
finale, it has gained all the musical stature that
it deserves. The acrobatics of the adaptations are
very subtly transcribed and a great deal of credit
must go to the musicians themselves."
Years later, in A Time To
Remember he would reprise the tune as Christmas
Can Be Everyday Here is a clip of the older version
Christmas Comes Once
