Something for Thursday

I played this piece via a band arrangement in college...and I hated it. At first. I thought it was cheesy, goofy, insipid, and idiotic. But the thing grew on me, and kept right on growing, until it became one of my favorite pieces. There's a kind of maniacal glee behind it that makes me happy, and I'm all about the glee these days! Here is the Polka and Fugue from Schwanda the Bagpiper.
