A very Happy New Year from the whole MfE team, we’re looking forward to sharing a musical 2024 with you!

We’ve found the musical equivalent of a glass of something bubbly to welcome the start of a new year with Strauss’ Champagne Polka – subtitled ‘A musical joke’, this was written to imitate the sound of a champagne bottle being uncorked. We think that makes an interesting challenge to pop the cork at the right time!

Listen to it here and see how many ‘cork pops’ you can hear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AabK4l4pX98
