Composers and their dads: famous fathers in classical music
This famous composer responsible for writing the Radetzky March, is also the father of Johann Strauss II, the king of light music and operettas. Despite Strauss the elder's musical background, he wanted his son to become a banker, and gave him a whipping when he discovered him practising the violin in secret.
