Whirling, brightly-clad dancers, brought to life in Smetana’s "Polka" from The Bartered Bride, are reanimated in this exhilarating transcription for concert band. The joyful celebration of Bohemian peasant life is evidenced from the development of the principal theme to the dramatic presto at the end. You’ll find it hard to stay in your seat!
