Nimble Toe Polka - for "Hungry Five" Polka Band

Professor Frank Marion Davis (1839-1896) was an American educator, singer, and composer of both hymns and secular works. Among his secular works were a number of collections of polkas and waltzes written for solo piano. This series of works presents arrangements of a number of Davis’ compositions prepared for the instrumentation of Alford’s “Hungry Five” polka band books and serve as a fine addendum to those familiar pieces. While the clarinet parts tend to be the most active, they often feature diatonic scalar patterns. All parts should remain accessible to most intermediate-level players.

“Nimble Toe” Polka (originally published in 1874) passes the melodic and accompaniment elements around the ensemble for a bit of variety for the players.

This downloadable PDF package contains a full score and a set of folio-sized parts that are ready to go for your German band's Oktoberfest gig!
