Johann Strauss II/Josef Strauss: Pizzicato Polka (Piano Duet)

Books | Piano Duet

Catalogue No: EA11984
Composer: Johann Strauss
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

This arrangement for Piano Duet depends upon the most delicate of staccato to reproduce the pizzicato effect, so it is both a delightful piece and superb practice for the intermediate pianist.Johann Strauss wrote the Pizzicato Polka, scored for String Orchestra with glockenspiel, with his brother Josef for a trip to St Petersburg. On the evening the novelty piece was introduced, such was the crowd’s enthusiasm that it was performed nine times. Similar scenes followed wherever the work was performed and it became one of the pair’s most popular works.
