C.M. Ziehrer

Toilette, Polka Francaise, Op 62

Arr. CPE Strauss

00:00 / 04:15

My orchestration of this polka by Ziehrer. There are several recording versions, but I don’t think any has the original orchestration so it’s fair game. One has the title translated as “Lavatory Polka”. The temptation to include appropriate sound effects and a picture was almost irresistible. However, “Toilette” did not mean lavatory. It's a later euphemism.
