Wikipedia, The polka: Dance in duple time originating in the Czech Republic around 1830. Polka means half step or short quick step.
I know what you're thinking. You're thinking the polka is not antique because you can hear the Beer Barrel Polka at any October fest. Except polka mania hit Europe in the mid 19th century, so most any polka you hear today is over 100 years old. This brings back a childhood memory.
When I was eleven I wanted to play a Chopin polonaise on piano but my hands were too small. A friend suggested I learn Weinberger's Schwanda the Bagpiper Polka which he demonstrated with great gusto. I remember thinking, polkas are not cool. But a few months later I learned it and discovered that not only was it fun and interesting but very difficult because Weinberger loads it up with frequent key changes and chromatic passages. Most polkas are played on accordion with tuba (sometimes by the same musician.) Schwanda is one of a few fully orchestrated polkas. So here is a brand new fully orchestrated polka with key changes and chromatic passages. Hope you enjoy it.
