My Choice - Josef Strauss: Village Swallows from Austria


(Dorfschwalben aus Österreich) Village Swallows from Austria a beautiful waltz by the Austrian composer, Josef Strauss (1827-1870). Plays the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Mro Carlos Kleiber. This is one of Josef Strauss famous and beautiful waltzes. We're showing swallows plus some scenery of Austria. He was born in Vienna, the son of Johann Strauss I and brother of Johann Strauss II and Eduard Strauss. His academic achievements at an early age do not point to his being a composer. His father thought he was best suited for a career in the Austrian Habsburg military, nevertheless, he studied music theory with Franz Dolleschal and learned to play the violin with Franz Anton. He was trained as an engineer, and worked for the city of Vienna as an engineer and designer. Josef Strauss wrote 283 opus numbers, many of which reveal a composer of remarkable talent. He wrote many waltzes, many of which are still in the classical repertoire, including Dorfschwalben aus Österreich (Village Swallows from Austria), the one we're featuring here. Carlos Kleiber (1930 -- 2004) was an Austrian classical conductor who spent most of his professional career in Germany. Kleiber was the son of the Austrian conductor Erich Kleiber and Ruth Goodrich, an American. In 1935, the Kleiber family emigrated to Buenos Aires. Karl's name became Carlos. As a youth, he had an English governess, grew up in English boarding schools in Argentina and later studied in New York and Zurich. He also composed, sang, and played piano and timpani. While his father noticed his son's musical talents, Erich Kleiber nevertheless dissuaded Carlos from pursuing a musical career: "What a pity the boy is musically talented", wrote his father to a friend.
