Johann Strauss II, father of waltz and operetta, was born in Vienna.
After 1855, he consistently conducted summer concerts in Petersburg for ten years, went to America in 1872 to “wine – woman and song”, “a thousand and one nights”, “vienna blood”, “artist life”, “blue tuana He wrote the waltz “,” the legend of the Viennese forests, “” imperial “. In 1871, the first operetta” indigo and forty thieves “!
They also have ophetes called “gypsy baron”, “cheerful war” and “one night in venice”.
It is the creator of the majority of music you hear when you imagine closing your eyes and making waltz.
A person who is a musician even though he does not want his father to be a musician. The eldest son of a family of 5.
Because they found the bank clerk boring, they together with their younger brother, Josef and Eduard, became the waltz king of Vienna. He tried his first waltz work at the age of 6.
His relationship with his father was also interesting, always in conflict, and he started playing with his orchestra in the music halls without his father’s knowledge. When his father left the house, he found it pointless to hide his interest in music from his father. The father and son split Vienna into two. The two have different masses.
Johann Strauss II father left them, he had to take care of his family at a young age; The father, a famous composer and palace musician, did not settle with this, he did everything to undermine his son’s musical career. he had concert posters, announced that he would protest his employers, years passed.
After the concert that lasted until the morning in 1844 and he was playing his father’s compositions as a tribute to his father’s composing both himself and after all, his father realized that he could not compete with him and offered to work together. In the words of the son strauss:
“I listened to the sound of my broken heart and refused my father”
Johann Strauss has been married 3 times. When Russian railways called him to Russia, he received many marriage proposals. Although someone has decided, this marriage has not happened. Later, he married another person. Although his family opposed this marriage, this was the happiest marriage. The person she married was a widow, 7 years older and 7 children. He was deceived in his second marriage. Since he was a love man, he made his second and third marriages quickly and thought that this contributed to his productivity and died on 3 June 1899 in Vienna next to his third wife due to respiratory disease.
If every person’s life had a background music, I would like it to be my “An der schönen blauen Donau“, which plays constantly in her mind.
