Johann Strauss I
Loreley Rhein Klänge, Walzer, Op. 154
Arr. CPE Strauss
My orchestration of Johann Strauss I's best waltz. It gets murdered a lot, hopefully not by me!
It was first performed on the 19th August 1843 and was a bit of a slow burner. The first performance was successful but not a triumph. The piece went on to be a great favourite with Strauss’s public and is one of the few Johann Strauss I waltzes to hold a place in the regular repertoire.
