This is Erich Moser’s most popular polka, Flott aufg’spielt, which roughly translates to ‘Playing quickly’. Erich Moser was an amazing steirische harmonika (diatonic button accordion) player from Austria, who was well known for his great technical skills and many unique, beautiful melodies like Kleiner Spatz am Dach, Walzer fur harmonika, and so on. Unfortunately Erich passed away at the age of 37 in 1992, but left us with his legacy of amazing recordings and compositions. This song is the first polka I had ever heard by Moser, which he himself would play with seemingly great ease, despite the complexity of this song. I’ve arranged this song with finger positioning ideal for piano accordion, in the keys of F and G (the original was in A flat, on steirische harmonika).
