The manuscript of this piano polka by 18-year-old Dvořák was only discovered in 1998; until that time no-one had even known of its existence. This little dance piece was written during the composer’s last year at organ school and is dedicated to his classmate Alois Stolz. The first known performance did not take place until 19 September 2020 as part of the Dvořák Prague International Music Festival.
