Johann Strauss II, also known as Johann Baptist Strauss or Johann Strauss, J. the Younger, or the Son (German: Sohn), was an Austrian composer of light music, particularly dance music and operettas. He composed over 400 waltzes, polkas, quadrilles, and other types of dance music, as well as several operettas and a ballet. In his lifetime, he was known as "The Waltz King", and was largely then responsible for the popularity of the waltz in Vienna during the 19th century.

About Johann Strauss, Jr. Ah, Strauss, the Waltz King.

The most prominent representative of the Strauss family, Johann Strauss Jr. is known as The Waltz King. He wrote over 160 waltzes and for many years he was Music Director of the Royal Court Balls. However, he could just as well be called the King of Polkas, Marches and Quadrilles, which are no less popular than his waltzes. True Art does not lose its value over time, and the music by Johann Strauss Jr. is still as magnetic and captivating as it was before. Great Waltz, the Hollywood film about Strauss’ life, relates that the Tales from the Vienna Wood waltz was inspired by carriage creaking, clattering horse hoofs and birds chirping during one of the composer’s trips through the forest. The forest theme will be carried on in the Huntsman polka, while Unter Donner und Blitz, a and Pizzicato-Polka will produce striking sound effects.
