S009b Tritsch Tratsch Polka - Strauss II, J.

£12.49

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 slightly less frantic arrangement (with optional Alto flute) makes an ideal concert piece for a mixed grade ensemble.
