The World's Greatest Music
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.
The son of Eduard, Johann Strauss III was unofficially entrusted with the task of upholding the family tradition after the dissolution of the Strauss Orchestra by his father in 1901. Johann III was primarily a conductor who saw the dynasty into the gramophone era by recording works by his family for Deutsche Grammophon.
