Evangelicals and Art: Johann Strauss II

This weekend I am going to showcase the beautiful music of Johann Strauss II. Johann was born in Austria on October 25, 1825 and lived until June 3, 1899. Johann is well known as an Austrian composer of light music especially dance music and operettas. He was known as “The Waltz King” and helped popularize the waltz in Vienna in the 19th century. There is a lot to feature in time but I thought I would start off with some well known works. Tritsch-Tratsch Polka is very established and has been used in movie soundtracks occasionally. I hope you have a good weekend!
