Čas počitnic in Slovenian or Schöne Urlaubszeit in German, this polka’s title means ‘Vacation time’ or ‘Have a good vacation time’ and is one of the most popular polkas by Alpski Kvintet (Alpenoberkrainer) from Slovenia. It was written by their first and very influential trumpet player in the Oberkrainer scene, Ivan Prešern (also known as Ivan Prešeren), who has composed over 300 songs, many of them becoming hits for Alpski Kvintet. Ivan’s wife is none other than Alpski Kvintet’s female vocalist throughout the 1970s till the 1990s, Ivanka Kraševec, who was also a Slovenian pop singer in the 1960s.
This polka is really energetic especially when played in a quintet. I’ve tried to capture some of that energy for the solo/trio arrangement and I hope you like it.
