The world's best classical march music
Dedicated to Austrian Field Marshal Joseph Radetzky von Radetz, Johann Strauss I composed this march in 1848. It's now a firm favourite at the New Year's Day Concert in Vienna, where it's often performed as an encore, and the audience clap along to the lively rhythm.
