Vienna Johann Strauss Orchestra – 50 Years Anniversary Concert


Johann Strauss I, Johann Strauss II, Josef Strauss


The Vienna Johann Strauss Orchestra can rightly claim to be one of the most authentic ensembles for interpreting the music of the Strauss dynasty. In 1966 - nearly 120 years after Johann Strauss I had founded the Strauss Orchestra, the great demand for high-quality interpretations of light music led a group of musicians in Vienna who belonged to the small ensemble of the Austrian Radio Orchestra to found the Vienna Johann Strauss Orchestra. The aim of new orchestra was to cultivate the music of the Strauss dynasty, together with so-called ‘light’ Viennese music. It was formed of fortytwo musicians, that it to say the ensemble was the same size as that which, according to authentic accounts, was preferred by the members of the Strauss family. With this festive concert from the Golden Hall of the Musikverein Vienna the Vienna Johann Strauss Orchestra celebrates ist 50th anniversary!
