'Played with a controlled panache that adds extra fizz to the music’s already infectious gaiety' (Classic FM Magazine)

'The Gaudier Ensemble regularly wins rave reviews here and elsewhere. This disc easily sustains their reputation as ideal in every way. Sad must be the soul who would not be enchanted by this release' (Fanfare, USA)

'A constant delight' (Hi-Fi News)

Scherz-Polka, Op 72

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The younger Johann’s Scherz Polka (‘Joke Polka’) was first heard at the Sperl ballroom just a couple of months after the elder Johann’s death. The title refers not to any specific joke but to the general playfulness of the composition.
