Johann Strauss II - Klug Gretelein - Walzer für Gesang und Orcheste
Johann Strauss II - Klug Gretelein - Walzer für Gesang und Orcheste On 18 April 1895 Vienna's influential Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde (Society of the Friends of Music) organised a festive evening to mark the 25th anniversary of the opening of its new building - the Musikverein - on the picturesque bank of the River Wien, which had not yet been covered over. The splendid red and yellow edifice, which today dominates the Karlsplatz, was designed by the Danish architect Theophil Hansen (1813-91), who was responsible also for the Vienna Parliament and Stock Exchange buildings. The Musikverein, which was soon to become the focus of musical life in the capital of the Habsburg Empire, had been dedicated to its purpose at the beginning of 1870. All three Strauss brothers had played for dancing at the inaugural ball in the Musikverein on 15 January 1870 and, moreover, performed in person their dedication pieces for the august Society - Johann, his waltz Freuet euch des Lebens (Enjoy your life) op. 340; Josef, the polka française Künstler-Gruss (Artist's Greeting) op. 274; and Eduard, the polka-mazurka Eisblume (Frost-flower) op. 55. For the silver jubilee celebrations of the Musikverein building on Thursday 18 April 1895 a truly festive evening was promised in its 'Golden Hall' (since 1939 the venue of the annual New Year's Day Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic), commencing with a "Festival Concert" followed by a "Festival Ball".

Radetzky March
Radetzky March Johann Strauss famous march played by Vienna Philharmonic. Conductor Zubin Mehta. Live concert from Heldenplatz, Vienna. Radetzky March, Op. 282 is a march composed by Johann Strauss Sr. in 1848. It was dedicated to Austrian Field Marshal Joseph Radetzky von Radetz, and became quite a popular march among soldiers. When it was first played, in front of Austrian officers in attendance, they promptly clapped and stomped their feet when the chorus was played. This tradition is carried over today when the march is played in classical music venues in Vienna, among members of the audience who are familiar with the tradition. It is almost always played as the last piece of music at the Neujahrskonzert, the Vienna New Year Concert. Despite its military nature, its tone is rather festive than martial, in accordance with its dedicatee's exuberant personality and popularity in the ballroom as well as the battlefield. It is usually played in under three minutes. Radetzky March consists of three main parts:

Johann Strauss II - The Blue Danube (Piano)
Johann Strauss II - The Blue Danube (Piano) The Blue Danube is the common English title of An der schönen blauen Donau op. 314 (On the Beautiful Blue Danube), a waltz by Johann Strauss II, composed in 1867. Originally performed 9 February 1867 at a concert of the Wiener Männergesangsverein (Vienna Men's Choral Association), it has been one of the most consistently popular pieces of music in the classical repertoire. Its initial performance was only a mild success, however, and Strauss is reputed to have said "The devil take the waltz, my only regret is for the coda -- I wish that had been a success!" The waltz originally had an accompanying song text written by Josef Weyl. Strauss adapted it into a purely orchestral version for the World's Fair in Paris that same year, and it became a great success in this form. The instrumental version is by far the most commonly performed today. An alternate text by Franz von Gernerth, Donau so blau (Danube so blue), is also used on occasion. The sentimental Viennese connotations of the piece have made it into a sort of unofficial Austrian national anthem. It is a traditional encore piece at the annual Vienna New Year's Concert. The first few bars are also the interval signal of Osterreich Rundfunk's overseas programs.
Wiener Sängerknaben: Blue Danube
Wiener Sängerknaben: Blue Danube The Blue Danube is the common English title of An der schönen blauen Donau op. 314 (On the Beautiful Blue Danube), a waltz by Johann Strauss II, composed in 1866. Originally performed 13 February 1867 at a concert of the Wiener Männergesangsverein (Vienna Men's Choral Association), it has been one of the most consistently popular pieces of music in the classical repertoire. Its initial performance was only a mild success, however, and Strauss is reputed to have said "The devil take the waltz, my only regret is for the coda—I wish that had been a success!" The Beautiful Blue Danube" was first written as a song for a carnival's choir (for bass and tenor), with rather satirical lyrics (Austria having just lost the war with Germany). The original title was also referring to a poem about the Danube in the poet Karl Beck's hometown, Baja in Hungary, and not in Vienna. Later Franz von Gernerth wrote new, more "official-sounding" lyrics: en.wikipedia.org
