Vergiss Mein Nicht, Polka, Op. 27
Arr. CPE Strauss
My orchestration from the Spina piano score of this polka by August Lanner.
It was first performed in May 1854 at the Brauhaus Landstrasse.
It’s a bit of an oddity. All of the changes in tempo are in the score, which begs the question – Did conductors of polkas generally pull the tempo about this much and Lanner just wrote the tempo changes in the score this time, or is it a genuine oddity to make the dancers fall over?
