Johann Strauss II
Ich bin dir gut, Walzer, Op. 455
Arr. CPE Strauss
This waltz, based on themes from his operetta Jabuka, was first performed on the 14 October 1894 at a concert marking the 50th Anniversary of Strauss’s debut.
There are recordings of this but every one I have heard wallows in sentimentality. The “complete edition” version even quotes Strauss’s instructions to his brother as to how to play the piece in its notes. The conductor ignores them.
This is my version. Up to speed!
