Tritsch Tratsch Polka [Flute Orchestra]


From the Publisher

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 orchestra version makes use of the extended timbres of the flute family, with optional Double Contrabass for extra depth. There is also an optional Orchestral Whip and Swannee whistle in the easiest flute part, guaranteed to work wonders for the counting!
