KAREL KOMZÁK III (1878 - 1924)
As with the Strauss family, there were three generations of composers, of whom the youngest, Karl Komzák III is the least known, rather like Johann Strauss III (and of the same generation), yet he wrote some really excellent music in true Viennese style. Komzák Enkel (grandson), as he is known in German, is not entirely unknown today, as he was the composer of the charming waltz Münchner Kindl, Op. 286. Several of his other 30 or so known published works compare well with that of his predecessors.
