“There are three books in the Polka collection, one each for three violin players. The polkas are mostly from classical sources, with a few popular and Irish numbers included. The music is clearly formatted and not too difficult, and could be great fun for a group of musicians to read through. One could easily substitute an accordion for one of the violin parts. My guess is that this would be a good resource for a violin teacher who wanted to ease students into playing in groups. Plus the polka is a mighty fine tune to dance to, and it is a great thrill for young musicians to play for dancing.”
“An inexhaustible supply of polkas from around the world.
