Johann Strauss Jr., known as the "Waltz King", surpasses all other
composers in the history of the operetta with regards to musical
inventiveness. With the sparkling temperament and winning charm
characteristic of his works, this genial musician brought world fame to the
Viennese waltz and made spectacular contributions to the field of operetta.
"Vienna Blood" was Strauss's last work, which he left incomplete at his
death. However, thanks to Adolf Müller's brilliant arrangement, this work
has become a fully accepted Strauss operetta, inspired by the brightest of
Vienna-waltz spirits and delighting anew at every performance through its
wealth of captivating melodies.
