Written for the great Scottish cornet virtuoso Matthew Arbuckle, The Arbucklenian Polka is a fantastic piece full of character and excitement. During the Crimean War, Arbuckle became leader of the 24th Regiment band of the Massachusetts volunteers and it was said of him, “When Arbuckle placed the cornet to his lips… there was nothing doing within the sound of his notes but listening.”
