My orchestration from the Spina piano score of this quick polka by Eduard Strauss. The only other recording I know of is quicker than me! Unheard of!

The picture is a bit of guesswork. This is Schwender’s Neue Welt establishment at the World Exhibition in Vienna in 1873, about the date of this polka. I don’t know for sure whether this polka was performed there, but the Strauss orchestra certainly played there at this time.
