Program Notes

The Clarinet Polka or A Hupfata is a popular musical composition from the end of the 19th century. Since 1971 it has been used as an opener in Lato z Radiem − one of the most popular shows of Polskie Radio Program I. The piece, performed (as its name implies) as a polka, has a simple and catchy melody, featuring a prominent extended eight-note arpeggio. It is typically performed in B-flat major.

According to Polskie Radio Program I, the music was created in Austria by a composer named A. Hupfat. Other sources claim that The Clarinet Polka was written under the name Dziadunio Polka by the Polish composer Karol Namysłowski.
