Johann Strauss II (born Johann Baptist Strauss; 25 October 1825 – 3 June 1899), also known as Johann Strauss J. the Younger, the Son (German: Sohn), son of Johann Strauss I, was an Austrian composer of light music, particularly dance music and operettas. He composed over 500 waltzes, polkas, quadrilles, and other types of dance music, as well as several operettas and a ballet.
Included in the newer series are the recordings one would expect: the Strauss Metamorphosen, the Bruckner Eighth Symphony, and Karajan's Beethoven Ninth. Love him or hate him, the works in which Karajan excelled were mostly of a serious, somewhat grandiose nature - making this compilation of Strauss waltzes and polkas an unlikely recording in which to feature the Austrian conductor, regardless of your personal feelings about his work
Johann Strauss I (German: Johann Baptist Strauß, Johann Strauss (Vater); also Johann Baptist Strauss, Johann Strauss S. the Elder, the Father; March 14, 1804 – September 25, 1849) was an Austrian Romantic composer. He was famous for his waltzes, and he popularized them alongside Joseph Lanner, thereby setting the foundations for his sons to carry on his musical dynasty. He is perhaps best known for his composition of the Radetzky March (named after Joseph Radetzky von Radetz).
