    Polka Dots - Trio (Sirulnikoff)

    Hi All,

    This is a piece I originally wrote for orchestra. I've also arranged it for Concert Band. This is a version for Trio - Flute, Violin, Piano (all GPO).

    Nothing very serious.

    Polka Dots

    I hope you enjoy it.

    Regards,

    Jack

    Howdy, Jack - Either it's my mood, or my generally wacky disposition--either way, I Reall Like This! wheeeeeeee, what fun. Love that high squeaky run you do with the violin a few times. Like my cat when I accidentally step on her tail!

    This is a very aptly named piece.

    Nicely place pizz as well as the squeeky highs.

    An enjoyable listen.

    Jack,

    A very colorful and humorous polka indeed!

    I like the unexpected turns and twists it takes along the route
    and the interplay between all the instruments.

    It would sound great with a real full orchestra and I can already see
    the faces in the audience as they break out in smiles...

    Well written!

    Thanks for sharing.

    This track is just down right fun to listen to Jack. You got me with the first squeak.

    Now that was real fun! Many of your audience members might think they shouldn't have had that extra stein of beer.... Some great twists and turns and great interplays of the parts. For some reason this reminds me of something Stravinsky might have done.

    I thought I recognized a few of the polka tunes you used. Are all of the melodies originally from traditional polkas or did you come up with some/all of them?

    Very enjoyable.

    This piece was orginally written for orchestra. A year or two ago, I posted a rendering of it here. However, I wasn't too happy with it, and recently I thought about reworking it, but then I decided to render the Trio version instead. I may still go back to the orchestral version.

    Thanks again.

    Best Regards,

    Jack

    Hi Hippie and Trent,

    Thanks for listening, and for your comments.

    There was no deliberate intention of using actual existing polka tunes, Trent, but I know there's one spot that sounds suspiciously like the 'Beer Barrel Polka'.

    Regards,

    Jack
