About this Recording


The second of Johann Strauss the elder’s sons, Josef, was a remarkably versatile, gifted and prolific composer of whom his brother, Johann Strauss the younger, once said: ‘[Josef] is the more gifted of us two; I am merely the more popular’. Josef left more than 300 original dances and marches, as well as 500 arrangements of music by other composers. This album presents thirteen of his best dances.
