Thread Name: Origins: Clarinet Polka
Subject: RE: Origins: Clarinet Polka
Rosemary, can you tell us more? Even if you don't have any proof, the details may be interesting. How did you learn that your father had written the "Clarinet Polka"? Are you (or was he) sure it was the "Clarinet Polka"? What title did he give it? Did he know the German title mentioned above? Whereabouts in Hungary did he serve? Did the army know about his compositions? How did he learn that his composition had become a world hit? Who disputed his authorship?
