"Polonaise" is the French word for 'Polish', it is a slow dance in triple time. The instruction 'alla polacca' is an indication that the music should be played in the style and character of a Polonaise. The Swedish "Polska" has the same origins as the Polonaise, 'Polska' means 'Polish' in Swedish. This music has ancient origins amongst the rural folk of Poland when it was primarily accompanied by singing, in the 1500s instrumental versions of the dances were adopted by the Polish aristocracy and used in their courtly occasions. Polonaises are sometimes composed with a contrasting middle section called a 'trio', while at other times the Rondo format is used. Some of the most famous Polonaises were written by the Polish composer and pianist Frédéric Chopin.

Johann Kaspar Mertz (1806-1856) was a lyrical guitar composer who worked in the 19th century. This guitarist was born in Pressburg (present Bratislava, Slovakia) and married a pianist Josephine (née Plantin). They resided in Vienna, Austria where Mertz had a loyal following. He performance prowess was of the highest order and was welcomed in Berlin (Kingdom of Prussia) and Dresden (Kingdom of Saxony) to concertize. There were also further tours to Poland and Russia.

Mp3 recording from youtube is performed by Valéry Sauvage.
