(1843 - 1894)

Both Philipp Fahrbach father and son were popular Viennese composers and conductors who rivalled Strauss father and son, but were constantly overshadowed in their respective lifetimes by the Strauss family. They were prolific, and composed much in the same style as the Strausses, but were unable to match their genius and popularity. The father played in Strauss’s original orchestra and the two worked together for many years. They both wrote excellent music that featured in popular concerts and dances—and music by Fahrbach, Jr has often appeared since in music played by ensembles.
