Johann Strauss, the father, the son and the spirit of the waltz
Music that makes you feel good
In Vienna, the waltz has a name: Strauss. The unwavering (and often imitated!) international success of the famous New Year’s Concert in Vienna, as well as the success of hundreds and thousands of recordings of waltzes, polkas and other galops that have sprung from the pens of the Strauss dynasty has reinforced the interest that is expressed for this music “that makes you feel good”: in the current tough times we are experiencing, this is not just useful, it is essential !
The Strauss dynasty, from the father born in 1804 to the son who died in 1899, almost covers an entire century: Alain Duault tells the story in music of this century as well as the extraordinary history of this family.
