Polonoise from 1790

The Gothenburg University Library has digitized several years of sheet music from a publication called Musikaliskt Tidsfördrif (“Musical pastime”). The first issue from 1790 contains a short Polonaise. I transcribed it in MuseScore and generated an audio file.

It may be the first time it is played for two hundred years or so. You can listen to it here:
