A Hupfata - Kgl. Bayr. Inf.-Reg. Hartmann, Kgl. Musikdirektor E.Burow, Nürnberg, Polyphon Record, ca 1910 (Prussia)

NOTE: A Hupfata (Klarinett-Polka) is a famous polka composed in Austria, by a certain A. Humpfat in the end of the XIXth century. Its simple and catchy melody immediately conquered Central European "kurort-promenades" as well as it appeared on the records. In Russia it was known under the title - God knows why - "A Grandpa" (Died'ka). I also met its contemporary Polish version entitled "A Flea". So, as it seems it had no specific title and often was catalogued simply as "Klarinett-Polka". The recording I uploaded was made shortly before WWI by some military band from Nuremberg.
