Following the universal success of his dance music, Austria’s “Waltz King,” Johann Strauss, Jr., turned his attention to operetta. Die Fledermaus (The Bat) was one of his finest efforts. Transforming a witty piece from the French vaudeville stage into a humorous Viennese confection tinged with mock-sentimentality, he created a sparkling masterpiece that premiered to instant acclaim on the Vienna stage in 1874.

A New York production appeared within a few months, followed by other successful performances around the world. To this day, the celebrated work remains a standard of the repertoire and is frequently produced on New Year’s Eve in a special all-star gala performance by New York’s esteemed Metropolitan Opera.

This affordable volume, reproduced from an authoritative German edition, contains the complete vocal score, including all dialogue in both the original German and a fresh, new English translation by Stanley Applebaum, prepared specially for this publication. It will be an indispensable rehearsal aid for soloists, chorus members, and pianists.

Captured in a beautiful package, including more than fifty color photographs, The Last Waltz tells the intriguing story of the Viennese Strauss family known for producing some of the best known, best loved music of the nineteenth century. Johann and Josef Strauss, the Waltz Kings, composed hundreds of instantly recognizable and enduringmelodies, including The Blue Danube Waltz, Tales from the Vienna Woods, Voices of Spring and The Radetzky March.

Their iconic music has been featured on the scores of nearly a thousand films. Yet despite their success, this was a family riven with tension, feuds and jealousy, living in a country that was undergoing seismic upheaval. Through the personal and political chaos, the Strauss family continued to compose music to which the Viennese anxious to forget their troubles could dance and drank champagne, even as their country hurtled towards oblivion at the hands of the First World War.

Classical music expert and radio host John Suchet skillfully portrays this gripping story, capturing the family dramas, the tensions, triumphs and disasters against the turbulent backdrop of Austria in the nineteenth century, from revolution to regicide.

The Legacy of Johann Strauss examines constructions of Austrian identity through the reception of Johann Strauss Jr.’s waltzes in the twentieth century. Zo Lang argues that the music of Strauss Jr. remained popular because it continued to be revitalized by Austrians seeking to define their culture.

Press coverage from the 1925 centennial celebration of Strauss Jr.’s birth celebrations in Vienna shows how he was reinvented for the new, post-Habsburg nation. The book also includes a discussion of the origins of the Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Concert and considers how Strauss Jr. was appropriated as a National Socialist icon in the 1930s and 1940s.

The Strauss family’s Jewish ancestry is discussed, along with the infamous forgery of paperwork about their lineage during the 1940s. There is also a case study of Strauss Jr.’s Emperor Waltz, considering its variegated usage in concerts and films from 1925-1953.
