Tune of the Day: Italian Polka

by Rachmaninoff, transcribed for solo flute

This polka was originally written for two pianos by the famous Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff around 1906. Its brilliant, easily recognizable theme appears to have been influenced by Eastern European folk music.

Thanks to Istvan for suggesting this tune!
