S009a Tritsch Tratsch Polka - Strauss II, J. (PDF DOWNLOAD)

£12.99

This lively Polka was written shortly after Strauss returned from a successful tour of Russia. There are various explanations of the quirky title, translated as "Chit Chat"; possibly it refers to the Viennese passion for gossip, or on the other hand may have been the name of his wife's poodle! This flute choir arrangement makes a great concert piece, with lively ornamentation in the trickier parts, and a sparkling piccolo part.
