Johann Strauss II

a.k.a. Johann Strauss the Younger

Author Code: GJSY

Born: Oct. 25, 1825 - Vienna, Austria

Died: Jun. 3, 1899 - Vienna, Austria

The eldest son of Johann Strauss (the Elder), Strauss first pursued a career as a bank clerk because his father did not want him to have a musical career. Nevertheless, Johann studied the violin secretly and in 1844 began conducting his own dance band in Vienna. After his father's death in 1849, the young Strauss combined his orchestra and his father's and began touring Europe. Achieving great popularity, Strauss continued to lead this orchestra until 1870 when he turned over the leadership to his brothers Eduard and Josef. Strauss, who became known as "The Waltz King", wrote nearly 500 dances, of which more than 150 were waltzes. He also produced a number of operettas including Die Fledermaus (The Bat) (1874), The Roman Carnival (1873), A Night in Venice (1883) and The Gypsy Baron (1885). His most popular waltzes include Morgenblatter (1864), Artist's Life (1867), Tales From the Vienna Woods (1868), Wine, Women and Song (1869), Vienna Blood (1871), Kaiserwaltzer (1888) and his most popular, the Blue Danube (1867).
