Johann Strauss  (1825-1899)
Last updated: 17.10.18
Johann Strauss (the younger), son of Johann Strauss (the elder), was an Austrian violinist, conductor, and composer of enormously successful waltzes in noticeably artistic style eventually obtaining the sobriquet of The Waltz King. He took up a musical career against his father's wishes who had wanted him to become a banker. He formed an orchestra in 1844 that soon rivalled of his father's. When Strauss the elder died, the younger combined both orchestras. He composed more than 400 waltzes including the Blue Danube (1866) and Tales from the Vienna Woods (1868). Both of these brought the Viennese waltz to a height of musical artistry. He also wrote polkas and other dances as well as 16 operettas including Die Fledermaus (1874) and Der Zigeunerbaron (1885). Other operettas have been made by others from his music. He also worked with two of his brothers, Josef and Eduard who were also successful composers and conductors. He made extensive tours visiting London in 1869 and USA in 1872.
For data housekeeping purposes he is listed in these webpages as the one-off composer of Perpetuum Mobile Op. 257.
