Letzte Gedanken, Polka
Arr. CPE Strauss
My orchestration of a manuscript from the Austrian National Library catalogued as August Lanner’s Nachlass “Alles nimt sein End” or Letzte Gedanken. It is not in Lanner’s handwriting and is undated.
It consists of two pages of manuscript for piano making up a polka, although I would expect a complete Lanner polka to have rather more music. It is pretty enough, but it is impossible to tell from the music whether it is genuine Lanner.
