No one made dance music more fashionable than the Strauss family of composers and bandleaders. Starting in the early 19th century, their waltzes took Vienna by storm and went on to conquer Europe, even into the era of gramophone records.
Johann Strauss II wrote more than 400 waltzes, polkas, quadrilles, and other dance tunes, as well as several operettas and a ballet. In his lifetime, he was known as "The Waltz King". Some of Johann Strauss II's most famous works include The Blue Danube, Kaiser-Walzer, Tales from the Vienna Woods, and the Tritsch-Tratsch-Polka. Among his operettas, Die Fledermaus and The Gypsy Baron are the best known.
