The popularity of the compositions, arrangements and exercises by Wilhelm Popp (1828-1903) has never diminished, and stems from his ability to write in the Romantic concert style and still consider their practicability for pupils and amateurs. Vocal and virtuoso passages have been arranged in accordance with the capabilities of the respective instrument so that the effect is always greater than the level of difficulty.
Russisches Zigeunerlied Op. 462/ 2, printed in 1896 for the first time, is the best example. Ideal for lessons, pupils' concerts or the competition 'Jugend musiziert'.
