This famous parody of a Polish polka with abundant 'wrong' notes (dissonances), wide melodic leaps, and sudden dynamic changes is a sterling example of contemporary music with high educational and entertainment value. In print since 1973, this quintet setting has become a popular contest and recital standard. Duration 2:10.
