Johann Strauss II (1825-99)
Johann Strauss II is the most famous exponent of the
Viennese waltz. If you need an explanation from me
as to who he is, you are probably on the wrong website!
Having said that, a surprising number of his pieces do
not have their original orchestral scores. Quite a number
of those that do have uninspired performances. Both
of these are reasonable excuses for me to have a go.
Neither really explains why I did the Blue Danube though.
