Pensive 'Polka-rédowa', RO196 Op 68
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
This is one of a number of Gottschalk pieces written on automatic pilot to feed the public appetite for polkas and waltzes, daintily charming but hardly inspired. A redowa is a lively Bohemian dance in 34 time, not dissimilar to a polka-mazurka. Gottschalk emphasizes the ‘pensive’ of the title with a tempo instruction of Andante con grazia, molto moderato. Not a polka to be danced to.
